Garden Visit

Mrs. Mumford's class and our class visited the RES/CHMS garden on Friday.  We observed and tasted the vegetables that were still in the garden.  We also spent time making detailed sketches of one or two vegetables.  It was amazing what we saw when we looked closely at each vegetable.  What a beautiful autumn afternoon to work on our scientific drawings.

Stone Soup Activity

This morning we brought the rest of our vegetables to the cafeteria for our Stone Soup.
Ms. Chapman-Renaud and Ms. Redmond from the Farm to School Program talked with us about many of the vegetables.  We learned where they grew and which parts we could eat (roots, leaves, stems, etc.)  They even helped us sort vegetables.  We tasted a few of the raw vegetables and herbs. We are so excited to try the Stone Soup tomorrow.

Audubon Field Trip- Autumn Inquiry

Kindergarten scholars went to the Audubon today, Wednesday, Oct. 1, to observe how plants and animals get ready for winter.  The Audubon guide helped children discover signs of fall in the fields and woods  Students pretended to be monarch butterflies migrating to Mexico and squirrels burying acorns for food during the winter.  This field trip touches upon three of our kindergarten science units; organisms, weather, and five senses.  It is more meaningful to kindergarten students when they are able to engage in hands-on learning like this.  The weather was cool and overcast.  Just the type of weather we would expect in Vermont in October.  Thank you to the parent chaperones who volunteered on this trip and helped students be observant scientists.
If you would like to walk the Audubon trails on your own they are free and open to the public.  The Audubon is a wonderful place to visit anytime of the year.
