We met with our Fourth Grade buddies in Mrs. Erikson's class on Thursday morning on a Thanksgiving project. Kinderbuddies and Fourth Grade buddies created turkey glyphs. A glyph is a type of data interpretation. Students had certain rules to follow as they constructed their turkeys. For example, if the student was a girl the turkey had a yellow beak. If the student was a boy the turkey had an orange beak. The number of feathers depended on the age of the student. There were a number of other rules that students followed for their turkeys. The turkey that each student created actually represented information about them and could be interpreted by others. It was a lot of fun working together on this project.

We took advantage of the beautiful weather Monday morning and visited our outdoor classroom. We noticed many differences since our last visit. The leaves that were yellow and red last month were brown. The woods even smelled like fall. Here is a photo of our walk back up the hill.

We hope you enjoy our squirrel book. Maybe you will learn something new about squirrels too.
