Each student is given a native animal and becomes the group expert on that creature. While exploring field, forest, and wetland habitats, students will search for the food, water, and shelter their animal needs for survival. Students will recognize that animals live only where they can find these resources as well as air and adquate space and that different animals have different needs. Students will also classify the animals and determine how they fit in the food chain. While playing an active game, students discover how animal populations are dependent upon the availability of resouces in their habitat.
Significant savings are offered when you select a second program to create a full-day of hands-on learning at Moose Hill. Full day rates start at $14 per student and depend upon the programs selected. Contact the Moose Hill education coordinator to learn more and to schedule your program. We provide a ratio of one Moose Hill teacher naturalist to 12 to 14 students. We can serve up to 140 students for many programs. One adult (teacher or chaperone) is free for every 6 students; additional adults are charged the student rate. The minimum fee is based on 10 participants per Moose Hill teacher naturalist scheduled for your program.
