Today's Actvities & Notes
Our group activity was helping God's Birds.
In keeping with taking care of our earth that God has made - we helped to build a Bird's Nest!:wink:
Using a coat hangers and some scrap pieces of yarn, ribbon, cloth, to set up out in the yard. This is our little attempt of helping the birds gather some nesting material. The children get to contribute to the beauty of spring while learning about birds and practicing fine motor skills.
This activity introduces children to the scientific method by encouraging them to make a hypothesis, do the research, make observations and compare the concluding results with their original hypothesis.
In a few weeks we will take a walk around the neighborhood in search to see if any of the materials can be seen in the nests in the trees nearby.
Individual activities included playing at the sand table with plastic plants and animals. Making a creative recycled project, such as a recycle helper hat, and designer binoculars.
The enjoyed the beautiful weather & their free time in the backyard today.
I am sharing some photos of the completed projects.
