Our newest spot is nestled in the middle of an Oak Hammock. This is the third location we have added to our schedule. The children really love being able to play in the forest and we were ecstatic to find another awesome spot to explore .#midpinellaslearnandplay #forestschool
“We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the Marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things." Charlotte Mason
This location has plenty of room for exploration. We have been keeping track of all of the varieties of mushrooms at this basecamp. Our field guides have been super helpful, and the kids are really getting into touching them and checking out the cap, gills, stem, ring, and cup. We have also found several bugs at our basecamp and the kids love seeing where they are from week to week. This past week we brought our stick let's to test out as well.
Our explorers always have their field guides, bug catcher, and palm fronds for exploration.
"The cooperative play and sharing is huge at this location. The children are working together to build whatever it is that comes to their imagination. "
I wouldn't trade our adventures for anything.
