Kindergarten Scientists

Kindergarten scientists spent an hour outside on Friday observing and sketching nature.  They began by sketching a crab apple tree.  Students will be sketching the tree throughout the year making note of the changes that take place.  Then students observed a small plot of land.  They sketched many of the things they saw including insects, grass, clover, sticks and leaves.  The information will be used for a special project we are working on this fall.  We will sort the things we observed into plants and animals as well as living and nonliving.  Then we will share our discoveries on line and compare what we found to what other students have found in different parts of the country.
