Our children are fascinated by geography. They really enjoy learning the terminology of land forms...lake, island, gulf, peninsula, strait, isthmus, cape, bay.
I used oven baked clay to shape the land forms in small bread pans.

Tracing, cutting, gluing...Butterfly Puppets! Gluing circles on a line to make an inchworm...
Embroidery...Sewing with yarn on mesh...
The full moon on March 10th is know as the Maple Moon.
We are lucky enough to have six beautiful sugar maple trees in the front of our school who generously share their sap with us each year. When the nights are still very cool and the days are warm the sap flows freely and sweetly.
The children love collecting the "sweet water" and together we boil it down into a rich syrup. The older children have researched the business of syrup making. They have designed labels for our bottles, determined the pricing, and will market their product this spring.
