The day that...
we found a salamander.
Red Squirrel and Newt are looking at a salamander. They found it under a rock. They thought that it was a grown up. They put it in water and it did not swim. They put it on dry land and it crawled away. They covered it with some leaves to protect it from the rain and wind.
Jumping Mouse was moving a big log. He was trying to make a path for the duck to go down the falls. He was also cleaning out the leaves.
We made Star Wars music. Some people played the drums and some people tapped on the tree and sang. Some people's drum sticks broke! This part of the forest classroom has become our stage. We had a concert 2 weeks in a row.
These pictures are from playtime. A lot of kids did the things in the pictures but some also played Power Rangers.
We had pizza for snack today. In the first picture we are making the dough. Then we went outside and put the dough in the pan to cook. When the dough was mostly cooked we added the cheese so it could melt. Then it was ready to eat for snack time.
It was good! 100% good! We ate the pizza and we each got a slice. The slices were shaped like skinny triangles. Red squirrel thought he did not want a piece but then, when he tried it, he liked it.
In Miss Wetzel's station we were examining worms. They are very fragile. First we experimented with worms that were alive - we wrote about: how did they feel? Then we experimented with gummy worms. The alive worms felt slimy and they looked redish greyish. The gummy worms felt sticky and looked yellow and red or white and red. The not alive ones were really stretchy and really sticky and really good. The alive worms moved. The alive worms were called earth worms.
This is Mrs. T's station. Mrs. T was the blue jay and everyone else was a salamander. We had to move like salamanders.
We had lunchtime in the shade because it was so hot in the sunshine!
We put the thermometer in the sun on a stump. The sun made the thermometer go up to 100 degrees! Even more than 100 degrees - almost 110!
It was a good day. It was 78 degrees when we first checked. Each time we checked it again it got higher and higher and higher and higher. It was a hot day.
