About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Did you know that children who spend time outdoors are more creative, curious, social, & content? Why not connect science and time outside for an ultimate learning experience! Nature is the catalyst for learning in this after-school class where science and ecology are learned through hands-on activities, educational games & nature exploration. (In partnership with PBS - Plum Landing)


Ecology, nature play and exploration are good for the body, brain and soul! Based on STEM-based lessons, this outdoor, after-school program for children ages 6-9 includes educational games, activities & investigations on the topics of habitats, adaptations, water health, predator-prey relationships & more!
All lessons are active and hands-on, and are connected to the Next Generation Science Standards. This program is offered in partnership with PBS Plum Landing (more information can be found at http://pbskids.org/plumlanding/parents/index.html)
