Check out a nature studies blog where Ms. Jung takes the first grade class onto a Nature Studies trek through the forest.
First grade seeded, and planted some Milkweed to help the butterflies during Nature Studies on Tuesday.
After that we went for a walk in the woods and learned about an invasive weed you can actually eat!!

Check out a nature studies blog where Ms. Jung talks about how some good old mud can be good for children of every age.
Getting in the mud, touching it, and having it on your hands, in your hair, and all over your face can be incredibly funny, silly, and actually good for you according to a blog I found. Take a look at the article which outlines how muddy kids are happier, healthier, more relaxed and great leaders.

Check out a nature studies blog from Ms. Jung she sees some of the our younger aftercare children master playground skills they've been working on.
CT AC kiddos are so proud they can hang upside down from the parallel bars! It takes practice, and perseverance to be able to pull yourself up to the bars and hang long enough to call over a teacher to show them what you can do.

Check out a nature studies blog from Ms. Jung as she finds a new friend on campus which signals that Spring must be on the way!
As the ice melted and the sunshine warmed everything up we are starting to see signs that Spring is coming. This week on campus we’ve had a couple of nature encounters with a native wasp species who can be found here in Maryland: the Northern Paper Wasp.

Check out a nature studies blog from Ms. Jung. Our Cherry Tree friends climbed all the way to the top of (a short) tree. They were very proud of their achievement, and happily played up there for quite a long while.

As we returned from our holiday break, our children were eager to get back to observing and questioning nature.
Happy New Year!
In Nature Studies, we have been blessed with some pretty nice weather this week, and everyone had a great time swinging on the vine … until it broke! No one was hurt, no worries, the thick cover of last year’s leaves cushioned the fall.

As we approach Thanksgiving break, our children took some time to enjoy the wonders of nature and be grateful for such beauty.
These will be the last nature studies pictures for a while as we head into our Thanksgiving break. During nature studies this week, first and second grades were busy moving things around the woods. I loved watching, and facilitating their cooperative efforts of moving fallen trees, and making leaf heaps for jumping in and throwing around. Fun was had by all.
Have a happy safe Thanksgiving.

Our fifth grade class decided it would be a great idea to create a field guide for the WSB woods.
Nature studies not only encourages our children to spend time appreciating our planet, it's also giving them a chance to practice the art of observation. With Ms. Jung's help, the students were able to put together a field guide of things that can be discovered in the WSB woods. Students combined curiosity, the scientific process, art, grammar, and observation to create a beautiful guide. Take a look at some of the pages.
