Winter Play & Learning
Winter is a wonderful time of year to get outside to play and learn. Many teachers in the Upper Valley are doing just that with their students. Younger students play in snow kitchens, use ice slides, measure snow depth, create snow volcanos and observe buds, while older students learn about strategies living things use to survive winter, the laws of thermodynamics, how to track animals, and winter tree identification.
In winter, you don't have to worry about yellow jackets, ticks, or any other wildlife and most students come prepared to go outside for recess, so they already have what they need to stay warm and dry.
