We Have a Map!

We explored our trails following a map that we've made, naming spots along the way. The children grasped the concept of "where am I now?" and were eager to find the spot on the map that corresponded to our place on the trail. There was a long discussion about the "singing tree" and lots of listening. The children are familiar with and enjoy exploring their favorite spaces, but the maps helped us to move along the trail!
Until Next Time,
finding the tree on the map

the mountain

first bridge, remember; don't look at your map when you're crossing the bridge!

fire circle stones

we are here

the singing tree.

humming along to the song

we were happy to see "Marsh Mallows" growing along the trail!

some fishing

this was the tire swing tree!

this was the rainbow tree!

"train tree log"

aptly named!


new bridges to cross

on we go!
