Friday morning is Forest Friday in one of the kindergarten classes. We go to a spot in the woods behind GSB with a project and spend the morning exploring and playing. Projects include finding salamanders, measuring the tree trunks with string, and looking for tracks.

Today, we practiced mountaineering on the snowplowed banks on the way to woods. We stayed in a line like mountaineers on Mt. Everest so that our friends would not get lost. We tip-toed on the trail looking for holes in trees and thinking about what could have made them. And by the end of the morning, we built houses for forest animals and pretended to be a wolf pack.
