The Forest Trust for the Children of Cortes Island and the CCHA Family Support are collaborating on nature activities that get children & families outside. We anticipate offering a weekly project or activity for the next few weeks. Cortes families are as resilient as any on the planet, so these offerings are suggestions for any families who would benefit from a little additional support and inspiration.
We hosted our first zoom chat last week which was quite sweet. The zoom chat group is certainly optional but gives children the opportunity to see friend’s faces and share some of their stories.
Next week’s activity is asking the children to draw a map of where they live, with the added incentive to guide the Easter hare to their homes. The children are being asked to draw in natural features and landmarks, and to find north where they live and to show the 4 directions on their maps. We will be sharing the maps on Tuesday, April 14 in our zoom chat, and may be posting them on the Cortes family website.
Further details on the mapping project and preregistration information for zoom will be emailed to families. If some families are being missed and would like to be added to the group emails, please contact Christine (cmrobinson54gmail.com).
