Last Thursday, we learned to walk quietly and slyly like foxes through the forest - walking in a special way so that we weren't stomping and making loud noises. We were so quiet that we saw some birds watching us very closely, then we spotted a slithery creature who quickly hid under some dry leaves.
Everyone was eager to visit the salamander habitat to see if they were still under the log.
So we peeked... and they were still there!

Have you ever found a perfect tree for you? A couple of us found the perfect sized tree - one that fits us just right when our arms stretch around the trunk. Here are some "my tree" photos:
We made journals for recording stories and poems that were starting to form in our minds. Some of us drew pictures of the plants, trees, leaves, and creatures on the site.
Looking forward to this coming week!
