Inspired by the Museum of Natural History, last week each child chose an animal as a subject for a diorama. Ranger chose a spider, Sachie chose a panda bear, and Silas chose a giraffe. Today we begin by thinking about the natural environments in which these animals live...
Ranger: I know what sorts of environments spiders live in -- webs!
Bianca: How would you make a web?
Ranger: Lots of line!
Ranger moves his pencil back and forth many times quickly -- creating a bundle of lines. He then makes two more bundles on different areas of the paper.
Ranger: These are the webs!
Sachie: I'm looking for the colors that you see in the bamboo!
