Nature with Ashley

Once a month Ashley Palmer joins the kindergarten class to teach about nature.  In April we took a walk to Sourdough Trail to observe what kind of insects live in the stream and what that tells us about the water quality.  We found leaches, aquatic worms, and many other insects where we did our samples.  The children used a microscope to identify the bugs they caught.

We enjoyed the nice weather on our walk.

Ashley led the way to the trail.

We scooped up debris in the water to find bugs.
Kade found an aquatic worm!

Before we headed back to school, Ashley led a group meeting in the tree fort.
