I8 took a co-op class called One Small Square. The class was based on the book series One Small Square which gives kids a detailed look at all the living creatures within a "small" square of land. The books are wonderfully illustrated and show details of the habitats one layer at a time. What a great idea for a co-op class!
|Each student kept a nature journal and they even had some homework to observe things in their own backyard for six days.|
|They shared samples of the things they'd found around the church during co-op class time.|
|The teacher even shared a white moth that we come across often and learned that we shouldn't touch them! I know J5 has given this caterpillar a ride on many occasions. Thankfully, he did not rub his eyes afterward...that could have been a problem!|
