Part of the fun in cleaning out the storage unit is that my children make discoveries of treasures from my classroom. On this afternoon it was the clipboards.
Olivine was napping and these two wanted to go outside with paper, pencil, and their blue clipboard (I used in centers, and they were a hit in the classroom as well because it signifies some sort of official-ness, plus it makes writing on the go-easy).
They wrote long descriptive lists of what they observed.
I saw mini scientists recording their surroundings
