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.
