Autumn Inquiry

We had a great trip to the Audubon today!  We explored the forest, field and beaver pond to look for signs of autumn.  Students were very excited to find a centipede and many salamanders.  We noticed how slowly salamanders moved in this cool weather. We were surprised by all the different kinds of seeds we found.  Kindergarten scholars pretended they were monarch butterflies and migrated to Mexico.  They even became squirrels hiding acorns for winter.  We learned a great deal about how animals and plants change in the fall as they prepare for winter.
Thank you to all our parent chaperones who helped on the field trip today.
