"Children are born naturalists. They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them."
In Part 1 I shared images from the 2010-2011 school year of our preschool friends playing and enjoying the nature around them. This post will show some of our current school year's nature images.
|Racing horses all around the playground|
|Sun, ribbons, and shadows equal happiness.|
|We love bubbles!|
|Wings from the Dollar Store. My friends were being butterflies.|
We had been learning about the anatomy and eating habits of
butterflies. The children would tell me they were off to find
nectar in the flowers and would use their proboscis to slurp it up.
|Big bubble fun with the fancy wand|
|Puddles beckon my friends to play in them.|
|Perching on a hay bale and chatting with a friend.|
|Hula hoop adventure|
|Collecting natural materials|
|Ring Around the Roses is always a hit!|
|Reading, it's not just an indoors activity.|
|Weaving on the fence|
Endless possibilities abound when you look for them and there's always an adventure to be had when you get 'em outdoors.
