looking closely at trees

Posted on: October 13th, 2013 by jnovakowski

Primary students all across Richmond are Looking Closely as they observe natural items outdoors.

Kindergarten and Grade 1 students in Ms Lo’s class at Anderson were read the book Picture a Tree by Barbara Reid and then we took the students outside to look closely at different trees – the shape, the bark, the leaves. The students matched up the fallen leaves on the ground with the trees they came from, sometimes having to look a little closely at the trees as it had been quite windy and the leaves were all over the place! The students worked in partners and chose an interesting leaf or a tree to draw, noticing and recording details.

One kindergarten student was particularly interested in the olloclip on my iPod Touch and he enjoyed taking some macro photographs of the leaves he was looking closely at.

Amazing photo from a five year old!
