Wednesday Forest Field Trips: Imaginations Run Wild
On Wednesday afternoons this summer, the brightest and bravest of the Big Kids have been exploring the temperate rainforests of Metro Vancouver, including Pacific Spirit Regional Park, the UBC Endowment Lands, and Burnaby Central Park. To see is to believe the magic of the forest! Please take a look below at what our Big Kids have been up to on their adventures:
The children took turns drawing their observations in Pacific Spirit Regional Park. Their works were filled with maple leaves, tall trees, and…tornados!
Some of our field trippers spend the afternoon “cleaning up their house” on the forest floor.
Our field trippers try to work out the physics of campfire construction as they balance sticks together.
The finished product…our campfire! The kids added leaves to give the impression of flames. Then, they found stick to roast pretend marshmallows on, handing them out to friends and teachers.
The forest nurtures this spirit of creativity and collaboration among little and big kids alike. It’s so much fun to see their imaginations run wild in the woods!
We’ve had so much fun in the forest this summer that we plan to extend our Forest Fieldtrips program into the fall. Join us on Wednesday afternoons from 1-5pm for more outdoor learning!
