We looked at tree branches with buds from a cherry tree, an apple tree and some other leaves bursting out from the warm weather! After talking about the buds each child got to make their own Popcorn tree!

We made spyglasses this week so we could go search in the forest for animals, bugs, spiderwebs and colors. We also got to meet Frannie the Fox-a fun puppet who taught us a bit about foxes. We pretended to be different animals; kangaroos jumping, bunnies hopping, horses galloping and fish swimming. Then we were off to see animals. Outside in the sun the turkeys were doing a mating dance. The swish of their feathers as they opened sounded like a ladies fan! When we counted the eggs we saw chickens fighting over the eggs and pecking at them. What were they doing? They were eating their own eggs! We played "I spy with my little eye something black and white." The children had no problem finding the black and white chickens. We played the game as we hiked on the trail along the stream. We peaked into holes in the ground and wondered who might live in there-a rabbit? A squirrel? A fox? or even a snake. We ended the class playing I spy and looking closely at paintings of the Amazon Rainforest.
