Let’s Talk About Trees!
Today we had a visitor in class from Talk About Trees! Through forest artifacts, displays and hands-on activities, we learned all about forestry and the Oregon forest. We explored the school grounds discovering interesting leaves, unique seeds, and our school’s magnificent trees. Our Talk About Trees facilitator, Catherine, even shared in our adventure with a wooden flute. Afterward, everyone had an opportunity to make their own sheet of paper from pulp, water and forest treasures like leaves and seeds. We were encouraged to appreciate the value of trees and forests in our daily lives. It sure was a nature-filled day at Portland Kinderschule!
