Our kindergarteners learn all about science and cooperation using our Outdoor Classroom. Classroom teachers work with Mrs. Spranger to introduce and participate in lessons about being a scientist in the school yard. They grab their clipboards and papers and head outside to work with their partners to document patterns, seasonal changes, bird sounds, feel hard and soft and rough and smooth textures and of course use tools like thermometers and magnifying glasses! Students work together to plant and maintain a section of the vegetable garden. At the end of our time together students and teachers plan a service project for our school community.
