Hip Skip Sky Blue . . .
That's a rhyme we've heard a lot lately! Freeze tag has become quite popular amongst the Tucker Room friends - and on a beautiful day like today, children were happy to spend most of their time outside playing this game. Collage and beading materials were also on offer.
Once inside, Jen had a special surprise to share with our group - a real duck skull and birds nest! Friends were able to pass the duck skull around, which was surprisingly light! They recognized features on the skull like its shape and the holes on its beak - "It's like a palatypus beak!", Cassius said. Friends also generated questions and wonderings regarding the birds nest - how Jen acquired it and what it was made out of.
After lunch, we headed out on a walk to find a few birds nests that we've heard are in the area. As we've followed our ducklings at the canal, children have become curious as to where exactly these animals live, nests being a theory. On our walk today, we found three different birds nests! Children were curious why some nests were bigger than others. Theories included the birds "moving" as well as the smaller nests being the start of something bigger. Tomorrow, we plan on starting a collaborative nest creation made from natural and found materials in the classroom - stay tuned!
