Developing Naturalists and Leaders in Muddy Boots Club
October 31, 2012
It takes many wonder-filled afternoons in Muddy Boots Club balancing on branches, collecting treasures and making observations in the woods to learn to care deeply about natural science and the environment. The Muddy Boots program has been extended from Pre K into K-1 and 2-3 this year. Students spend time on Fridays conducting nature scavenger hunts or determining “Who eats what in the woods?” Muddy Boots Club curriculum goals include: Developing a sense of place, wonder and discovery; observing the connections and relationships between living and non-living things; and fostering stewardship of the environment.
