We will investigate a variety of topics in the natural sciences through outdoor exploration, learning activities, experiments, nature games, stories, and art projects. Each week's class will focus on a different natural science theme including: using our senses in nature; living and non-living things; animal groups like mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and their life cycles; plant growth and native plants; discovering and studying invertebrates like insects, worms and snails; seasonal changes; the water cycle; landforms & geology; simple chemistry concepts like molecules, chemical reactions, or polymers (slimes); and much more! We will almost always go outdoors for a portion of every class, rain or shine.
