We had perfect weather for the Nature Classroom overnight on Lookout Mountain.
Did you hear about the ORT report? After every meal, the amount of food and beverage that was thrown away was weighed. The children learned how much energy is wasted with every pound of food that is discarded. I hope they will remember that lesson at school!
Before each meal, twelve student waitrons set the tables. At the end of each meal, they also cleared the tables and washed them.
Another one of my favorite memories was playing four square with your children during free time. I had so much fun!
My second group of fourth grade biologists completed their ecosystems. They are in their rooms for them to observe and care for as needed.
As I watched the sunrise reveal the fall colors outside my classroom window, God’s glory was on display. What a beautiful way to begin my day!
My husband and I went to Harvest on the Hooch today. The event was a fundraiser for the Unity Garden at Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell. Volunteers work this garden and provide 8000 pounds of organically grown produce to North Fulton Charities each year. It would be a great place to visit with your family and there are lots of other things to see at the nature center too!
Saw these fun guys at the center.
This large caterpillar was found outside near the pond behind the Lower School. After some research, we discovered that it is the larval stage of the silk moths we saw several weeks ago. Click here to read that post and to watch a video.
Look at the science treasures that have come into the science lab recently.
Thanks to the Littletons for this tree round.
Ian brought me this sunflower that has gone to seed.
Mrs. Vore surprised us with this gourd and another gourd that she beautifully painted.
