Today during guided discovery rotations we performed a play about a dog with a poor sore paw. The kids enjoyed building a bridge a role playing the characters. They were excited to perform it for their friends as well. We also had a chance to practice our fire safety skills while roasting marshmallows to make s'mores! These were a huge hit! Another group went foraging for ingredients for mud kitchen.
During Station time we had the chance to follow through on our forest plan that we had made in the morning. Grey Fox climbed a tree or two or three. Red Tailed Hawk and Bobcat were busy building a fort while Newt and Bat were busy building dams to reroute the water in Dirt City. Still others spent time playing house in Fairy Village. The kids did not want our time in the forest to end and neither did we. "Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of Others, and Take Care of the Forest!" Until next time...
