    • Bring students outside to gather other found materials (rocks, sticks, leaves) to contribute to their terrariums.
    • In small groups, children can create terrariums using a variety of plants and a collection of soil, sticks, leaves, and other natural materials.
    • Guide the  students’ play by continuing to model how to create a terrarium and supporting the children in the creation of their terrariums.
