Summer 2018 as we do it!

Week Two – June 25-29 Endangered Species
A week of learning and compassion
Only ten children were so fortunate to learn about an endangered animal of their choice. They made the animal, they wrote and decorated books about them, and the last three days we built their habitats. In the process the kids not only acquired great compassion for all the animals, they also successfully overcame a huge learning-curve in manual dexterity and thinking skills, and they all became good friends with each other. A perfect summer experience!
