Scouts Camp with Miss. Hannah was so much fun! We had a chance to spend the week “looking closely” at our environment and the world we live in!
The third day at camp focused on animals with antlers and hoofs. We learned that they are often referred to as ungulates.
We did a scavenger hunt to find a variety of antler types and then Miss. Hannah told us all about the animals they came from. Some of the antlers we got to hold and touch were from deer, caribou and the biggest pair came from a moose!
We pretended we were deer and played a fun game of tag where we had a friend blindfolded as the prey (deer) and we were the predators sneaking up on them to try and take their bandana from their pocket. It was hard to be sneaky at times, we learned that we needed to pace lightly and quietly so our prey wouldn’t hear us.
On the fourth day of Scouts Camp we learned about Snowy Owls and Great Horned Owls!
We learned that they are also called zygodactyls and that they eat their food whole and spit out all the fur and bones in pellets.
Throughout the rest of day four, we got to make really cool fairy nests with our peers.
We also collected a variety of leaves, rocks and grass from Camp Gardner to share with our loved ones at home!
The last day at Scouts Camp was so much fun! We had four different stations that we got to rotate through!
Station #1 was roasting delicious marshmallows in our very own campfire. We got to look closely at how to keep a fire alive and we got to smell the smoke and enjoy the gooey, tastiness of our sweet treat.
Station #2 was building nests in the wilderness.
Station #3 was activities and games.
Station #4 was looking closely at a black bear and journalling about him.
We really enjoyed our time at Scouts Camp and learned so much about our world and the environment! We are excited to bring some of our discoveries into our classroom and to use our exploration table to further question the world we live in.
