Dear Families,

The families enjoyed our trip to Scales Nature Park in October. Many thanks to Dean Campbell of Campbell Bus Lines, for donating a bus trip from Huntsville to Orillia.

The Nature Park visit provided the children with hands-on learning with living reptiles and amphibians. The tortoise was a big hit with the children and the staff were impressed that they had learned the terms plastron and carapace.

The children use wooden puzzles and nomenclature cards for “parts of” with the five classes of animals in order to enrich vocabulary. It’s very important for the young children to be able to use all of their senses to discover the world. Thus, being able to touch these animals was very meaningful for the children in learning about reptiles and amphibians.
