We are loving our springtime discoveries! We encountered something new in our garden – a real bird’s nest! We inspected it carefully and noticed that it was made of twigs and grass and dirt.
We decided to create a similar nest in our classroom, so we collected lots of little sticks from around our garden and brought them inside.
Then we worked together to build a nest, using the real one as a guide. Our first step was to figure out how to make that round shape. We looked all around our room and thought about what we could use as a round base. We finally decided to use a bowl! Since our nest is brown like dirt we painted our bowl brown. Soon we will figure out how to use the twigs we gathered.
