Jellyfish made a nature bracelet with pipe cleaners  and pinecones. 

This week we stayed connected while staying home. Some families are participating in the #DailyDoseOfNatureChallenge which offers 30 days of nature play ideas to keep us outdoors while we homeschool. Teachers also offered prompts to continue our ongoing discussions about finding a class pet. 

Students uploaded awesome videos of interesting finds in their explorations, as well as asking questions of their fellow classmates about their observations in nature.
