Last week students explored the Crocker Conservancy to collect natural materials in preparation to create a bug hotel.
Yesterday, as a part of Earth Week, Kindergarteners assembled a bug hotel outside of the Kindergarten classrooms. The bug hotel is designed as a safe hideaway for wildlife in and around gardens.
As part of their habitat study, students will continue to learn about the dangers facing animals and plants due to pollution (ocean), deforestation and development (rainforests, temperate forests, wetlands, deserts) the warming of the atmosphere (polar), and illegal hunting (grasslands). They will learn from their first grade friends about how to compost their lunch waste at the end of the week. Students will also participate in an outdoor scavenger hunt based on a nature inspired poem.
