The magic

Liliana said "It's such magic being outside with the kids - swinging on vines, looking for holes..." The K-1's are studying local animals and their homes and habitats. On Thursday they found katydids, lady bugs, and many other fascinating creatures. They made observational drawings and notes and added to their collective bank of knowledge about wildlife.

They have each chosen an animal to research through books in the classroom and on the internet with our librarian, Carol. Their joyful curiosity is fueled by forays into the school's woods.

One young researcher has chosen the skunk as his topic. He was a little worried about being sprayed and was relieved to learn there would not actually be a skunk coming to class.
