June Lessons:

June 6th: The Buzz on Bees

The purpose of this lesson is to teach students about bees, and how they affect the world we live in. We will learn about a bee’s job, we will observe the beehives, and we will make bee finger puppets.

June 13th: Planting a Vegetable Seed

The purpose of this activity is like our “Planting a Flower” activity we had in May. However, this time there will be focus on how to grow your own food. We will go over everything from planting a vegetable garden to having fruit-bearing trees. Our focus will be to learn what we can grow, rather than buy at the store.

June 20th: Nature Walk Observation

Our class will explore nature first hand. We will take a walk through our Nature Trail as well as our Enchanted Trail. We will use our walk to observe the different things we can find in our natural world. Through observation, we will learn about how an ecosystem works together.

June 27th: All About Cardinals and Robins

We will focus on Cardinals and Robins. We will learn why they are important in our community, and why they are special/native to our area. We will learn about their anatomy and coloring. We will also learn about what they eat.
