Our exploration of nature began on the nature trail behind our school. Ms. Doherty took groups of three children at a time out on the trail to collect items for our class nature collection. After our collection was complete, we decided to sort what we had collected; we ended up with many different groups. We glued most of our collection down to create our nature collages, and constructed hanging mobiles with the rest of the materials!
We are amazed at the variety of things you collected on your nature walk. How lucky you are to have a nature trail right outside your classroom. What clever work you did in sorting your items into like collections. We were impressed with the numbers of ways you sorted. It must have taken you ages!! We wish we could visit your classroom to see your beautiful collages and mobiles. Your fabulous Animoto though made it feel like we were there with you.

Awesome job of sharing your classroom. I have seen pieces of this in your room, but I like seeing it all together from the beginning to the end!

What a wonderful job you all did with gathering, sorting and making something new out of the things you found in nature. You should be very proud of your hard work. I am going to share your work with my kindergarten students! Keep up the great work!
