Nature’s Classroom

Just before 11am, we heard some crows SCREAMING in our forest. We rushed outside to see what was happening, but we couldn’t tell from where we were standing. We found out later that a large hawk had captured a crow and all of the other crows were yelling at the hawk to get out of their territory (and maybe telling it not to hurt their friend?). It was an amazing (and scary!) sound. After it was over, we talked to the students about hawks and crows and why that confrontation happened. It’s nice when our whole environment can be a classroom.

Here is a closeup of the hawk.
