Musical Instruments in the "Outdoor Adventures" Classroom. The Thong~A~Phone is made with 2 inch PVC pipe and 90 degree elbows at the end. We constructed a pallet to hold all the pipes in place. By hitting the open end elbow with Flip Flops that are stored at the base, gives off the sound of organ pipes. Children learn important skills through experiencing music activities. Music provides a wide range of benefits to children including language, motor coordination, thinking , creative expression, emotions, rhythms and motor skills. Corinne Carr
There are many fun ways to display nature with young children. We decided to take our weaving to the Outdoor Adventures Classroom in our Nature Art Area. Children develop their small motor skills through weaving projects. I put together a loom on the top of a tree stump! Weaving is a shared group project learning activity and provides a unique opportunity that promotes curiosity and imagination. Children gathered weaving materials such as: tall feather grass, dandelions, vine flowers and sticks. While it may be difficult for small children they can still put their findings in the loom and create something fantastic. Weaving is a significant tradition across world cultures.
