This leaf and stick pile at the base of a tree may not look like much, but in all reality this is a lesson in empathy.
Today, one of my students came across a honeybee who was grounded due to the chilly temps and rainy weather. Once we researched why she was grounded, my students came up qith the idea that maybe a little nest of leaves sticks and an acorn shell bed at the base of this tree would be a nice place for her to rest until the temps were higher and she xould take flight once again.
These children teach me so much about what it means to be a "good creature", I feel so honored to spend my days when them. It is such a gift.
