Four Winds

The puppet show is always a favorite!

A big thank you goes out to Katy Gamelin, the mother of a student in Mrs. Hughes' class. When she learned we did not have a Four Winds volunteer, she offered to teach our class too. Hooray! This month's Four Winds was about Leaves. Students learned about how/why leaves change color in the fall, the purpose of leaves, and the structure of leaves. It was a great lesson!
Students searched for and found one leaf to bring in to study and use for leaf rubbings.

The rubbings turned out great!
Check out our leaves!
Beautiful leaves

Students studied the structure of the leaves too--they are quite observant scientists! :-)
