Yesterday the kids had great fun modeling animals with clay. Madelyne started everyone off with her giraffe that she gave a long moustache and a beard we called the Fu Man Chu Giraffe. Megan created a bunny rabbit she called Sad Gerald. Leela modeled an unknown creature with a monacle and a moustache. They acted out some of Part 3 of the Story of the Sacred Tree which Megan recorded with the iPhone4 and everyone got to watch the video afterwards. We went outdoors in spite of the drizzle to plant our sunflower seedlings in the garden – this was their first experience planting ever. They drew up weather and human geography charts and then presented their chart to the rest of the class.
