Exploring nature and learning to care for our environment is a critical component of our Montessori Curriculum. We spent the week exploring and caring for the environment. The class learned to take care of the birds by filling up the bird feeders outside. They learned how to use the scoop to put the seed into the bird feeder. Our class also had the opportunity to witness the life cycle of the butterfly over the past few weeks. This week we were able to set our caterpillar turned butterfly free!
