In this in depth, multi-session program, we spend time in our pre-visits playing games and looking at animals and learning about their specific adaptations. A field trip to Broad Meadow Brook helps us understand their habitats and why specific adaptations are important. In the post visit, students create a creature (real or imaginary) out of recycled materials with specific adaptations. Students finish the program by starting a writing assignment about their creature.

While there's a lot about New England woods that we can see - chipmunks, stone walls, pine needles - there is much more that we seldom see. On each fallen twig, under every log, and in each pile of leaves, there are animals and other living things. By exploring this important habitat, we will discover the decomposers that are constantly working out of sight. We'll also take a close-up look at soil and the invertebrates that live in or on the forest floor.

Are trees the solution to climate change? Through place-based, inquiry driven investigation, students will study the role of trees in the carbon cycle, and expand their investigation to find out whether forest sequestration, or indeed any one nature-based solution, is enough to fight climate change.

In this unit we will explore different types of "minibeasts", or invertebrates, like worms, pill bugs, and more. Students will engage in outdoor investigations to find out where the best place is for a minibeast to live. Students will document their observations in field journals as they explore different habitats in their schoolyard and use models to explain how these habitats may or may not support the needs of invertebrates. Finally, students will expand their investigation to explore the role invertebrates play to enrich the soil, and understand how humans can learn from them to reduce their footprint and protect their local environment.

Wonder Walk is a gentle exploration that focuses on using our senses to learn about nature. What can we see, hear, smell, and safely touch in nature? Can we identify a tree by its smell or texture? What shapes and colors can we find? What does a bird's song tell us? What words can we use to describe soil? Why do animals leave scents behind?
