Nature Inspired Field Trips

      Although our preschool has not scheduled a visit to Powder Valley, I thought some of our parents may be interested in visiting this local nature center with their kiddos on weekends.
       Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center in Kirkwood, MO., is a wonderful place to take preschool/kindergarten students to learn about God's world. They have both family and classroom-size self guided tours and classes. Classes specifically designed for Preschool through Kindergarten at the center fill up quickly, call ahead for a reservation at 314-301-1500. 
      Teachers may wish to design their own lessons and tours; I recommend you visit ahead of time to plan what you will do. There are also trails designated especially for little people and outdoor facilities to meet in if you prefer these to indoor classrooms. 
      There are many interactive displays, a puppet theater, aquariums and even a giant tree house!
