Recently the weather has been ideal for creating snow structures! Our naturalist friend, Res, built a quinzee across from the Welcome Woods that the Nature Kids have been enjoying this week. We have two rules for the quinzee: a maximum of three people at a time can be inside and no climbing on top!
The quinzee has provided a wonderful context for all sorts of learning. Children are exercising their creativity (pretend play and art), math skills (counting how many kids are inside), social skills (taking turns, following rules, reminding each other of expectations, conflict resolution), executive functioning skills (patience, self-control) and so much more.
