There was a lot of excitement brewing yesterday when Mrs. Hempel took her Pre-first class to visit with Dr. Miller’s science students for a day of nature observation at the high school campus. Each Pre-first student is paired up with one of Dr. Miller’s high school science students to explore the nature and animal life at the River Campus bridge. They had their Tiger Bags ready to collect all their nature findings which included sticks, feathers, flowers and other various plant life. Students got to witness the real circle of life when running into a few rabbits that looked to be a hawk’s lunch (best part for the 5 and 6 year olds).
“What I hope my students take away from this a sense of awareness for our larger Ensworth Community. A goal for our little children is an appreciation for the little and big things in our natural world. The spontaneous moments that come about bring me the biggest joy and provide the best learning opportunities for all of us, ” said Pre-first teacher Cris Hempel.
