When the weather allows it, teacher Brandy Boston and early childhood educator Kate Clarke like to get their Kindergarten class outside on Wednesdays to explore the environment.
Some days, the kids use their curious hands and minds to study fallen leaves, measure distance or count stones in the schoolyard at King George VI School.
But last week, with the help from some parents, 24 students made the trek on foot to Canatara Park to see Lake Chipican and the Children’s Animal Farm.
Searching for frogs and turtles proved to be major highlight of the day.
The kids also poked around under rocks for bugs, collected leaves and viewed the pond through a magnifying glass.
Large armour stones became temporary desks for colouring in scenes and insects.
