After several weeks of nest and egg making, we (educators) decided to surprise the children. We met to make nests. We became fascinated with nests – as much as the children have.

 

Our clay nests are received with great excitement.  The children continue to make nests and discuss the possibilities for each nest.

We decide to study nests and project images of nests in the classroom during nest making time.  More stories, more animals join the inquiry as the children connect their nest making to the nests projected on the wall.  Even a wasp nest is added in the classroom.
