The weather on Friday was beautiful! When we went outside for our nature hunt, nearly half the school was outside! I love seeing so many people outdoors! During our morning meeting, our class talked about how much time we go outside versus inside and everyone decided that we would all try a little more to spend some time outdoors playing! We went outside to search for nature items to collect and place in our nature boxes!

|T.W arranges the dandelions in her nature box|
|O.B scatters the items in his nature box|
|T.S arranges his nature box|
|D.K wanted to keep his items from the nature hunt on one side of the nature box|
|J.C places a branch against the side of the nature box|
|G.P places the flowers in the corners|
|O.S rolls the play dough to create a worm|
|He then places the worm in his nature box|
|K.M creates a bee|
We'll be adding some finishing touches to the nature boxes by placing saran wrap over the openings and the students will be able to take their nature boxes home!
This upcoming week, we'll be learning about worms and how they help our planet! I can't wait for the class to meet the red wiggler composting worms!
What can you do this weekend to help the Earth? :)
