Naturalists

We started off our morning with a discussion and brainstorm:img_3316

Then everyone drew and wrote what they wanted to look for or might see today:

Colton wanted to dig in rotten logs and find “a lot of bugs.”

Jacob thought the snow would be soft. He wrote “so” for “snow.”

Kenzie also wanted to find bugs in logs or “treasure” as she called them.

Alec in his Sit Spot. He is our first “Forest Kid of the Week.” This will turn into a class book, with a kid featured each week who was very responsible, focused, and caring in the woods.

Leah found a tree with a big hole that she thought might be an old woodpecker hole. We dug it out but didn’t find any bugs.

This tree, right next to our fire circle, is definitely a woodpecker tree. Look at all those holes! There was a big pile of wood chips below.
