What Is A Scientist?

During this field trip, you will learn about how scientists use questioning skills that enhance creativity, foster intentional curiosity, and increase the retention of information. We will learn how to make close observations and respond by asking questions about the natural world right in our wildlife sanctuary! After learning these scientific skills, each child will reinforce these skills by creating though the art of nature journaling. Children will learn tools to look closely at our delicate and tiny ecosystems that lives amongst nature and draw them in their very own nature journal. This program will feature a digital microscope to allow us to see the extraordinary in our ordinary to connect with nature. Quality art materials will be provided for each child to be able to draw, decorate, and take home their very own nature journal.
