Last week, during Nature School with Division 8, students worked on collecting, counting, and creating. The students decided on a nature item to collect. As you can see from the photos, chestnuts were a very popular choice. Once students had collected their nature item, their task was to organize their pile so that it could be easily counted. Some chose to organize by 2s, 3s, 5s, or 10s depending on the size of their pile. Some of the collections ended up having more than 200 items. Once the items were counted, all 35 students worked together to create a collaborative art project. We didn’t stop to count the final number of items in the heart, but we decided that it was definitely more than 1000.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
