WILD IN THE WOODS
Story hike and grass heads-
The childen and i have been exploring our wooded trail by going on a book hike. We are reading the story "Life" and asking philosophical questions such as "what does it means to be alive" and if drinking eating and breathing is being alive "are animals and plants alive?" After reading we are making grass heads by growing something small (grass seeds) into something big.
The children and i will be exploring bugs this project. After reviewing some strange bug anatomy, the children are sent to scavenge for natural materials to create their bugs.

Poison ivy hunting-
The children and I are learning how to identify poison ivy. We are counting the leaves on our identification chart and singing the ryme "leaves of 3, let them be!" After a brief disussion of the repercussions of touching poison ivy, we head off into the woods in search to find and label the poison ivy in our surroundings. Afterwards they will add a picture in their nature journal by drawing 3 leaves and a stem. A picture will also be added for parents to learn to identify poison ivy with their child in the future.
