Fallen Branches

We have a new and exciting investigation coming together in Room 3! After deciding that we needed to find more natural materials to utilize in the classroom, we began searching neighboring areas around our school. We found tons of stuff, but the children we’re far and away the most interested in the rather large, fallen branches that we kept finding. So naturally, we brought them back and discussed what we could do with them. There were lots of amazing ideas, including building a teepee. Right away we tried to take the large branches and build this rather large structure. We had some success, but in the end it just wasn’t going to work. So, we then began to research and plan. We’ve been viewing instructional videos, drawing up plans, and are now building a miniature teepee using what we’ve learned. We are excited to try it out on a full scale again!!! There are more cool things to come!!!
