Creatures in Snow - Homeschool and Preschool

Tracks and Trails
The Winter Explorers ventured out to 4-H acres, where the early morning snow beautifully covered the land. The group wandered to Fall Creek in search of Sean's mink friend who left us some tracks in the new snow. After a snack, we took turns playing hide and go track - a great game to break up and almost untouched powder. Following that, we wandered into the Monkey Run forest for an 18 match challenge! Lunch and stores kept us warm as the forest slowly shook off its snowy cloak.
Ithaca Forest Preschool
At Preschool, we experienced all the changing weather of the week. Our theme this week was Coyote. I'm not sure if we found any coyote tracks, but on Monday we definitely found those of Fox, Opossum, and several Deer. With those tracks that were frozen in ice, we poured hot beeswax into them and made track candles!
