Together we will hike out on the GUS Nature Trail and discover new areas each day as we explore the woods. We will let our imagination + sense of wonder lead us as we use open-ended materials to play and express ourselves creatively in our natural surroundings. We will build homes and invented structures for the creatures (real and imagined!) that live in the woods surrounding Glen Urquhart School, and will see how we can create nature-inspired art on the trails!
