Meadow Exploration

A Mass Audubon Educator will lead a discussion on the animals that live in a meadow habitat. Students will have an opportunity to explore the meadow using bug boxes and magnifying lenses for direct observation of the meadow inhabitants they collected. Students will make notes or drawings of their living collection, and then release the critters back to the meadow. The Mass Audubon Educator will lead a discussion of the life cycles and adaptations of the animals found.
