The Ladybugs made their way out to the Forest, and when we arrived it was clear that someone was here before us. The children observed the footprints on the ground...
"Look! A bunny was here, it went out this way, and around the fence into this yard!!"
The children walked around, looking for more clues on who could have been in the Forest earlier, "LOOK!!!!! LOOK AT THESE FOOT PRINTS!!! They're huge, they must be BIG FOOT'S!"
"Yeah, lets follow them to see if we can find them, they're going this way!"
All of a sudden out of the corner of a child's eye, they noticed some colour in the snow... it was coloured ice!!!
"Let's make a trail, to see if we can trap big foot in the forest!"
"BIG FOOT WHERE ARE YOU!!!"
The children climbed up on trees to get a better view,
"COME HERE BIG FOOT WE HAVE FOOD FOR YOU!!
With no luck, the children went back to the foot prints to observe,
"Look, my foot can fit right inside Big Foot's print! Look at the size compared to mine!"
"You know what? I think he's sleeping"
"Yeah, let's finish this trail for when he wakes up... I think he likes fish so make sure we put fish in there so he can find us when he wakes up!"
Although we didn't find Big Foot, we were still happy with the time we spent exploring.
We were able to work together as a team and try out our ideas in order to find out more about the mysterious foot prints in the Forest! The ladybug group was able to use their imagination, investigate, share ideas, problem solve and learn together!
Stay tuned to see if Big Foot makes another appearance in the Forest!
