Landmark 12 (Nearby Plants and Animals)
On Friday, we had our very own Naturalist, Lynn Smith, volunteer to visit and walk in the woods with us behind the school! Lynn helped us identify the Scotch Pine, Trout Lily plants, and the Sugar Maple leaf. We turned over logs to find worms, centipedes, slugs and bugs, and examined bits of bark and interesting shaped sticks. We were excited by green moss and marveled at how it doesn’t have roots. We found yellow fungi and bumpy trees and felt different types of bark. Lynn was a great sport–she answered questions and encouraged us to “listen,” and “look,” carefully at our surroundings. It was a super day, full of warmth and sunshine that we have all been craving.
