In a Tall Tall Tree

Last week we went on an animal hunt in the woods behind our school. 
We went on a hunt to find animals that make their homes in our woods. 
Earlier in the morning Ms. Bulger, a grade 2/3 teacher, and I went into
the woods to hang animal pictures.  Her class went on the hunt ahead of us.

When we were ready to go I started with a poem called
In the Tall Tall Tree.

Then we gathered our nature bags, binoculars and a
booklet to record what we find and headed into the
woods.

Some of the pictures were low to the ground, like the rabbit and rat. 
Others were high in the trees, like the eagle and the bat.

We had to search up and down, here and there. 
When we found one we took it down to have a closer look
and read some of the information on the back.

Then we opened our book to get a stamp.

 We continued till we found all of the animals and our books were full.

Here is a glimpse of the cards I made for the hunt.  On the back of
each is a little ziplock bag that holds the stamp.  I carried a couple
of stamp pads with me.
