Animal House PreschoolPreschool in Medford, Oregon
We discuss the birds who visit our garden daily and talked about which ones stay with us through the winter and which ones migrate. The children looked at maps to see where our favorite birds live and the countries to which they migrate. We examined several different nests and looked at the various construction techniques and materials.
The ocean inspires us every summer with its color, beauty and diversity. The children never tire of examining our collection of specimens from the deep. We focused this year on corals and the damage pollution and climate change are inflicting on reefs around the world. Our little ones seemed eager to help conserve the amazing oceans and their inhabitants.
Is there anything more wonderful and awe inspiring than witnessing a tiny egg becoming a beautiful butterfly and releasing it into a clear blue sky to fly free? I haven’t found anything since I first watched it happen almost fifty years ago, hopefully our children will feel the same way.
