Outdoor Learning at Thatcher Brook

Passing our Talking Stick
We had our first Outdoor Learning (O.L.) afternoon last Thursday. We follow a structure to our afternoon which consists of a Gathering Circle, Share with our Talking Stick, Choice, Activity, Sit Spots and Closing Circle. We are exploring different habitats and our first outing was to Thatcher Brook. The children were so excited and curious about the brook environment- We went on a scavenger hunt and we found crayfish, fish, built structures with stones, listened to birds, observed the moving water, observed insects and flowers, and shared our learning with each other. Next Thursday, we will explore the woods.
