We took advantage of this beautiful fall weather to have Friday Feast Picnic. After the picnic, I had planned to lead a movement game related to our bug study. Before I had a chance, the children created their own game flying around like buzzing bees and fluttering butterflies. The game was extended to include crawling caterpillars, squirming worms, bees collecting pollen and then doing a "honey dance". What a glorious day!

This week we took a walk in the woods to look for a dead log. We had prepared for our adventure by dissecting a rotting log in the media table. The children found centipedes, spiders, slugs, ants and sow bugs. We read books to learn more about the life in a dead log. We took a walk in the woods to look for more specimens to observe. We were fortunate to come across a large log. We used all our might to roll the log over. Two black salamanders, worms, ants and a toad were found! A successful and fun mission!
