Students will learn from direct experience with nature. We will learn about what lives in our forests and fields, gain comfort in the natural world and build confidence by exploring in a wilderness setting. Sticks, rocks, water and dirt are our tools and toys. Children are free to use what they find in nature to create their games, art and activities. Snacks and lunch will be picnic style by the creek.
