Count and Collect Nature
Last week’s nature adventure involved rolling a die and a mystery bag.
The children took turns rolling a big yellow die that had numerals on it.
Then another child reached into a bag and picked an item that I had
collected from the woods earlier in the morning.
The children then went on a search for that item, counting and
collecting enough to match the number that was rolled.
We continued rolling, counting and collecting till we found all the
items from the mystery bag.
Their bags were full so I collected them and returned to school
to let everything dry out.
The next morning I set up the art table with the materials and
Lois Ehlert’s book “Leaf Man”.
With a few extra pieces they created creatures and collages.
