Edith Teter Preschool had a memorable, creative and productive week.
Tyler Stoltzfus, with the Department of Wildlife, brought animal furs for the children to examine and touch. They learned all about the animals, their environments and wildlife safety. Though they discussed and learned about wildlife safety in general, Tyler also emphasized the importance of bear safety during his visit and lesson with the preschoolers.
All the children enjoyed the time spent with the Department of Wildlife and the fur samples that Tyler brought with him. The hands-on educational activity was a great success.
The preschoolers were motivated to take everything they had learned and put it into action. They were determined to take their teacher Ms. Carol on a trash pick-up journey around the school, to which she was happy to oblige.
Being some of the youngest members of the community and the school itself, this week they played a substantial role in caring for their neighborhood, the animals and the environment in which both groups live.
Thanks to the Department of Wildlife and Edith Teter Preschool, these students are helping keep our land clean and safe for the future. This is one experience that these young minds will surely not forget. It may influence them in the future to keep taking action and making a difference, in the mountainous wilderness that they call home.
