Newton School Forest Kindergarten - November 19, 2015
Small groups worked on drawing and writing to put in time capsules to find later. They will bring warmth, color, and inspiration to us some cold winter day. We were inspired by the book Frederick, by Leo Lionni, in which four mice collect food for the long winter ahead and one mouse collects up sun rays, colors, and words to brighten up a cold winter day.
Small groups learned about how animals prepare for and survive winter. They sorted animal cards by whether they migrate, hibernate, or adapt.
"We're just wandering."
"Driving a jeep"
Following a friend up a tree
Finding interesting things, like a hole in a tree
or a moth that camouflages well
Time to Make a Fire and Snack:
Building a fire
Waiting for quesadillas
Gathering together for a story and snack
Reflecting on Forest Day:
|Dressing for the cool, rainy weather and safety during hunting season and cooking over the fire were important parts of Forest Kindergarten today.|
