Just sharing a fun thing we did this week in my first grade classroom. Today we were fortunate enough to go on a walk with the Audubon Society. We checked out a vernal pool, went on a nature walk and then explored our findings under magnifiers. The kids loved it! I'm not so much of a "dig in muck and look for bugs gal", but I did enjoy the fresh air and the nature walk. It was a nice reminder to me though about how many outdoor learning opportunities there are, and how much the kids need to experience learning outdoors as well as indoors. Here are a few pics from our day.
