Being Deer

This Monday morning we talked more about deer and what they need to survive in Bowdoinham. We talked about how they find food in the winter if there is snow– they can dig with their hooves to find things on the ground like acorns, apples, and grass, or they can scratch into bark to get the tasty green inner bark. They can also eat buds. Miss Bonnie thought they might also eat the needles from trees if they were really hungry, like her sheep do!

Here are some of our deer-related plans:

Jacob wanted to follow turkey tracks. He wrote “follow” “turkey” and “track.”

 

In the woods we pretended to BE deer and looked for food and then cozy places to sleep, under low-hanging branches. The rest of the story of our day:

We had a great day, despite the cold wind!
