Winter Study with the Bumblebees

The Butterfly Class did a unit on Winter with the Bumblebee Class.  Each morning after Meeting we got together to read books, talk about winter, do science experiments, sing songs, make winter projects and so on.  It was fun for the Butterflies to be the "big kids" and help their younger friends with the projects.  My favorite project was the birdfeeders that we made and hung in the gazebo yard.  The children’s favorite project was turning a liquid into a solid – specifically turning apple juice into apple popsicles and then eating them for snack.  Part of our unit focused on how animals have to adapt to survive the winter.  The Butterfly Class wrote a book about what we learned and soon each child will have a turn to take the book home for a day.
