Lesson Update: Nest Building

April 27, 2019:

I noticed while teaching 4th graders that setting out boundary cones may be helpful to keep nest placement more manageable. Students were venturing a bit too far into the woods to place their nests, which resulted in a few nettle stings, too much time required for each pair’s nest placement, and also difficult to retrieve materials at day’s end. Try setting out orange boundary cones and instruct them to only take “one step outside the cones” to place their nests, or something that makes sense to you! -Amy
