Helping Flying Friends

Help Build a Bird Nest is an activity we'll be doing in the Spring to help our neighboring flying friends build their nests, so that they can lay their eggs. We'll be taking various different colors of yarn, string, and even dryer lint outside to place on trees and other plants for birds to gather for their nests.

Drawing Shadows

We will be creating Shadow Pictures, since the sun has been out more these past few weeks. Students will be paired up, or helped by a teacher, to create a picture using the shadow of a leaf and drawing the outline on paper below it. We will use many different colors and leaves, and display them in our classroom once they're done.
