Story by Principal Lynn McClure
Working hard is now seen as dirty business at Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center. Dirty business originated with a small group of teachers trying to yet again reconnect our children with nature. As the idea grew, so did the dirt.
Triangle Construction graciously donated staff, dirt, and machinery bringing backhoe after backhoe of dirt our way for three days straight creating large mounds of dirt for exploration along with small mounds of dirt for our outdoor mud kitchen. Equipped in play clothes that get washed each week at school, our children can now be seen working dirty and learning lots about density, height, friction, mass, reaction, movement, texture, volume, and weight. Attached is a great brochure for families regarding outdoor play and its benefits as well as our shared agreements regarding dirt work.
