Hi Maureen, That sounds like an awesome idea! Definitely a fair share of work but I think it would be feasible, especially if we want to keep the students from missing out on a lot of valuable Science and Social Studies experience. I was actually going to ask about the whole integrating subjects idea but after reading your post, you seem to have a great strategy going! Integrating the subjects ...

Hi Lauren, Last spring I volunteered in a Kindergarten classroom and the kids went on a nature walk in the woods near the school.

I think it would be best to provide some guidance but let the kids choose their own topics for the most part.

Like I said, even though it took a while to complete, it was definitely worth it!

It was also straight to the point without filler information which is great when you need a quick reminder lesson to refresh yourself.
