As we continue to learn about fall and about harvest we read Possum’s Harvest Moon by Anne Hunter.  We then created a circle map about fall and talked about where we learned it from?  We also then wrote about things we can see in the fall.

In the afternoon we took a berry picking trip to celebrate the way we harvest in Shaktoolik, ate cranberry muffins made from berries I picked previously.  We really enjoyed experiencing picking berries, seeing fall colors in the bushes on the tundra and tasting the sweet muffins!

Also our teacher aide, Amanda, found mussu (an edible root found out on the tundra).  She taught our students how to harvest the mussu and we all had a taste!
