Feeding Wildlife

We had a large bin of corn donated to our classroom that we decided to place outdoors for the animals in the forested area of our school yard. We discussed with the children what types of animals might enjoy this food source, and where they thought a good place to leave it would be. Because it was such a beautiful day outside, we spent time looking around the yard and discussing with our friends what we thought. 

Many children decided to bury the corn a little in the leaf piles or hide it in the grooves of our large trees.

We asked the children to remember where they hid their corn. In a week we're going to head outside again and see if it's still there, or if it's been eaten!  I wonder what we'll find!
