Today, the children participated in a variety of activities in their outdoor learning session. They began the afternoon with a teamwork task, working together to lower a stick to the ground (it's harder than you might think!) Then, they made tree guardians, which legend tells us are responsible for a successful harvest and represent new life. It is believed that they make sure the seasons come and go and ensure plants and animals are all safe and healthy. In addition, the children began the mammoth Boston West leaf clearing challenge, that takes place every autumn! Lots of beautiful trees means there are always plenty of leaves to clear. Finally, the children revisited some fire circle safety procedures and were introduced to a new song - Yogi Bear.
