Nature school explored the mud and woods while Year in the Woods learned how vibrant the colors of the woods are when it’s raining,  how to build a debri shelter, some folklore about wooly bears AND that umbrellas don’t work and rain gear keeps you warm and dry only if you are wearing it.  #natureschool #yearinthewoods #resilience #problemsolving #sensoryinput #pratt
