As part of our science learning we routinely do observations and journal entries in or related to things in nature. In these pictures students are seen observing several items:
1. living and non living things outside in an area marked off with a hula-hoop, and subsequently sorting them according to characteristics;
2. drawing stargazer lilies, some of which were dissected to learn the parts of the plant involved in reproduction;
3. a potato that was used for an experiment and which rooted and was then planted in a large pot. It was growing so fast that we began to measure its growth and discovered a rate of two or more centimeters per day!
4. a new composting set-up complete with 1,000 red wigglers.
The quality of students' nature journal entries has risen dramatically and we are having fun learning about our amazing Creator.
Each child in my care is a sacred trust. I want to give him/her my very best. Watching children grow and mature is truly a joy.
