We had so much fun on our nature walk--
We found grass, trees, flowers, sticks, rocks and bugs.
We even discovered a bird in a nest in the tree right outside our classroom!
Each child had a paper bag to put items they wanted to collect.
When we got back to our classroom,
we turned our collections into art using clear contact paper.
We played hyperdash (see here). The kids love cheering for each other as much as playing and it helps practice quick identification of numbers and colors . . . while improving gross motor skills . . . but most of all--its FUN!
