Since the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, I have been taking some students and their teachers at Milbridge Elementary School outside each week to learn about nature here in Downeast Maine. This spring, they were excited about paying attention to phenology and sharing what they observed with you since there are so many exciting things going on during spring. They practiced their observation, writing, and reading skills outdoors all spring and on May 9th we sat under a spruce tree together behind their school where I recorded them sharing their writing.
