A workshop with the pre-school at the Waldorf School of Atlanta! Our day began with a discussion about our senses and the Journey Sticks that we use at The Cabin Path. The Journey Sticks are beaver chopped sticks covered with a brown lunch bag and a few nature provided materials and decorated to depict each of our 5 senses! They are carried on our trail walk and are held up when one of the senses is seen, heard, touched, tasted, or smelled. The sticks are shared along the way, and many times, all sticks will be held up at the same time. We also talked about how animals use their senses in different ways...and how many have more than 5 senses! We pretended to be an animal in the woods, and talked about how that animal would use its senses.
We touched toads...
We saw insects..and homes for insects!
and more toads!
We smelled wildflowers, fish beds, and the fresh air!
We heard geese, the wind, and rushing water...
It is too early for the berries around The Cabin Path, so we used our tasting skills on a picnic lunch!
A day of play and discovery...
