KINDERGARTEN EXPLORES FAUNA & FLORA ON A NATURE
As part of an annual tradition, Morah Tayna Goldstein and her husband, Mr. Dov Goldstein, an amateur naturalist, escorted her students on a nature hike on our beautiful grounds. They observed a grasshopper and its movement as Mr. Goldstein held it in his hands. They also explored a great variety of leaves of different sizes and colors, large and small feathers, berries, moss, acorns, black walnuts, mushrooms on trees and a smelly stinkhorn mushroom on the ground, the bitter taste of cherry twigs, and lots of "deer beds" (flattened circles of high grass where deer sleep). Each girl illustrated the highlights of their nature excursion on a "Fun in Fall" journal page.
