Building and Mapping
The group enjoyed constructing a village using natural blocks and woodland creatures--they built towers and bridges to connect with one another's animals. We have also been talking about mapping our forest paths, using left/right and cardinal directions to describe our hikes. We also spent time in the Anwatin Garden, spending nearly all afternoon digging in the dirt :)
Our constructed city. Wooden blocks and animals were set out as an invitation to play, and the bark bridgers were a product of their creativity! They stacked different width wood rounds to add support under the bridges.
