Timberwolf Trail - Week 22 - 2017-18 Edition

We finally got snow that has stuck around for a few days. However, with out 100 Day celebration and a snow day, we didn't get as much outdoor snow time as we would have liked. I have a feeling we'll make up for that this week.

We did have the opportunity to do some snow art. Using red, green, and blue markers or crayons on white paper, we drew a basic picture. Then, after mixing water with food coloring, we aimed at re-creating that same scene on our snow white canvas.

It definitely took some practice and trial and error with fine motor control, but the results were impressive and the class seemed to enjoy this activity.

In the classroom, we have focused our project-based unit on the essential question, "What can learning about birds teach us about the world around us?" Through lots of reading, discussions, observations , investigations with various bird artifacts, and daily viewings of a live bald eagle camera, birds are becoming an important part of our daily ritual.

It was very exciting to see our newest nature kindergarten visitor in the video above. We hope he/she comes back again soon
