During our outdoor learning/play time, the children have all expressed an interest in interacting with the leaves. In response, we incorporated another provocation into the classroom this week by adding a basket of oak leaves from our outdoor classroom. Bringing the leaves inside allowed the children to take a closer look and engage with nature in a different environment.
This week we introduced the children to some banana leaves, allowing them to engage with the natural world in an indoor environment. The leaves served as a great learning material because of their large size, bright color and varied shapes (some whole and some missing pieces).
