Autumn is a time of change in the natural world and a wonderful time to explore the forests at Arcadia. We will divide into small groups and take a forest discovery hike learning about seasonal changes. By observing leaf patterns and looking for similar characteristics, students will begin to learn classification skills. Students simulate squirrels and chipmunks gathering acorns in order to prepare for the long winter months. Students will learn the different winter survival strategies of local animals by playing a game. We will begin and end with a large group activitie. This program is 2 1/2 hours with 30 minutes for students to eat lunch.
