Frogs and flowers
Updated: Oct 9, 2021
Happy equinox to all! We celebrated the autumn equinox with fall flower crafting, pears, autumn songs, and frog exploration.
Pacifica's Heron Pond is just full of little frogs catching sunlight by the shore. What a magical experience to watch them hop away by the hundreds!
Students lay out flowers for pounding the color into fabric with wooden blocks. We used sunflower, Hopi red dye amaranth, indigo, marigolds, calendula, and zinnias. All locally grown by the teachers or others in our local community! And one little birdwatcher in the background using our "owl eyes."
Frog observations! We released the frogs but kept some of the eggs in this fishbowl to see if we can watch a tadpole hatching.
