Four Winds--Pine Cones

Thank you, Mrs. Gamelin, for another great Four Winds class today! Students learned all about pine cones. Mrs. Gamelin first asked the class what they already know--and students knew a lot! She then showed them some examples of different types of pine cones and did a puppet show with pine cone characters. Everyone learned so much and were able to answer questions about pine cone facts after the puppet show. Students then got a pine cone to study and observe. Most students drew their pine cone and a few decided to take written notes on what they observed. Mrs. Gamelin showed students how to make a bird feeder to using sunflower butter and bird seed. Your child should have brought this home today to hang outside sometime soon.

Here are a few photos of the highlights of today's class with a slideshow showing all the photos I took during Four Winds today.
