Today we also learned about sketching trees. Today we focused primarily on the parts of the tree and the shape of the tree. We sketched from far away and also practiced using binoculars to see more from far away. It was a beautiful day for sketching!
We made paper airplanes in the afternoon since we couldn't do it on our field trip Monday. We made awesome paper airplanes that can really fly far and high. We had two rules I know you will want to have at home too. Planes could not be flown toward anyone's face, and could not be flown toward the lights. We got one stuck on the lights and turned them off just to be safe in case the lights got hot. I know you will want those rules at home too. We designed and redesigned our planes after flying them. We also enjoyed naming them and decorating them too. Then we flew our best plane in a two person race to see whose plane would fly the farthest.
I hope everyone has a fun, safe long weekend!
