Come to Arcadia and visit pond, field and forest habitats. Students will begin with a participatory activity to learn some of the plants and animals found in each habitat, and their adaptations. In small groups, students will explore each habitat. Pond exploration will include using small nets to find insects and other invertebrates as well as amphibians. The forest exploration will include a hike looking for animal homes, exploring aging pine trees, and learning what lives in and under a log. In the field, students will use nets to look for grasshoppers, crickets and other insects. To conclude, children will verbally share their discoveries and participate in an active game.
Classes are invited to bring a picnic lunch.
