We were out in the forest today.
We were in the woods making a bathroom in case someone needed to go to the bathroom outside.
We put sticks all over.
We needed sticks that were large enough. We put the little ones in a pile on the side.
Mrs. T had a "measuring stick". If they were taller than her stick they were long enough.
The water in the stream got bigger and faster because it was raining! When we went over the bridge and went to the end of the stream, it was even higher than last time! When you are patient, the water can fill a lot of space. The bridge is high enough that the water will not go over it.
Wood Turtle says that when the water drops it sounds like drums.
When Blue Jay felt the rain on his head it felt like little balls were falling on his head.
Eastern Box Turtle said it felt like hail.
White Footed Deer-Mouse said it felt like showers all over the place.
We did some station work inside.
In Mrs. T's group we read about our new forest animals in our book, Naturally Curious. These are our forest names and we will keep them all year!
Red Squirrel said we were finding our animals in the book. We were finding out when they come out and what they eat and looking at pictures of them. Some of the animals were silly and some were not.
In Miss Wetzel's station we looked at some objects and thought about their sizes, shapes, and colors. We were drawing our objects. The acorn top was the same as the circle.
We used a thermometer to see how cold it was outside and a rain gauge to see how much rain fell.
Boy, was it soggy out there!
