In December we read multiple versions of the Gingerbread Man stories. Kindergartners were learning about characters and setting through reading about several different gingerbread characters. They loved this unit and all the activities involved.

Friday's ECO lesson was 'Meet a Tree'! Students had to trust a partner to guide them through the forest to a tree while blindfolded! They then used their senses to get to know the tree. After removing the blindfold they had to try to find the tree they met. Our awareness was raised on how every tree in the forest is different. We also discussed the many uses of bark. It was a fun outdoor day!

Friday's ECO lesson centered around trees and all the wonderful things they do for us! We ended our time in the forest by thanking the trees for what they do. University students joined us in the woods today which provided the opportunity for small group activities. Kids were tallying deciduous and conifer trees, making shelters, and even using dead branches sawing and drilling to make ornaments and necklaces.
