Kindergarten students from Crestmont Elementary School in  Richmond  taught by teacher Robin Hart-Poindexter came to the garden for a  tour on Wednesday.  Our tour included  investigating the garden with the five senses, looking at the redwood trees and the wetland and talking about habitats and life cycles . We also spent some time in the Create with Nature zone building objects from  natural materials from the garden . The students worked collaboratively and individually building small teepees, shelters, sculpture and musical instruments which were demonstrated, time machines, thrones, and pathways. Each student or student group described the materials used, the process and the title of their works.  Students were particularly interested in connections and attachments such as tying, wedging, inserting.
