How Do You Grow a Tree?
Last week, our children got the opportunity to watch as some workers were planting trees at the Lillie St Parkette. The children were so engrossed in this experience and sat and watched the entire time we were at the park. This week, we noticed some of the children “growing trees” in our sandbox. They have been working together to dig holes, placing braches in the ground, covering them up with “dirt and sand” and then watering them. As educators, we are theorizing that they are making connections from what they saw in our community and extending their learning by exploring this on their own. What do you think? Do you see the connection?
