Today I shadowed Teacher C, a shop and science support teacher at the local friends school where  Teachers A and B teach.  Today, Teacher C had a group of 6 kindergarteners that he was taking around the grounds of the school.  They were looking at the various gardens on the grounds.  Teacher C feels like for students of this age, a teacher must define vocabulary and bring it down to their level.   He has students engage in drawing and coloring activities to see what they have observed in the gardens.
