Junior Elementary Homeschool Fall
Thursday, September 8, 2022 | 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$75.00 – $288.00
Thursdays | September 8, October 13, and November 10
Our Junior Elementary Homeschool Program is an introductory experience for children ages 6-8. With the guidance of experienced naturalists, we begin to work in groups to discover nature at the Center. Students form connections with the creatures and habitats that make-up Southeastern Wisconsin.
September 8, 2022 | Ponding: The Big Picture
Frogs, turtles, ducks, oh my! Learners focus on larger animals easily found in our ponds and conduct animal surveys for reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds, and the smaller creatures they eat. We also get an up-close encounter with an animal ambassador native to our ponds!
October 13, 2022 | Great Lake Michigan
How great is Lake Michigan? Learners start by getting a big look of our very own Great Lake on top of our 60-foot tower. We then travel to the lake where we discover the gifts of the glacier!
November 10, 2022 | Fall Migration
Temperatures are changing, and creatures are starting to move to their winter homes. We will focus on where animals migrate to and why they are migrating in the first place. Learners will find out about the many kinds of animals that migrate, including a special visit with our raptor ambassadors!
A completed student profile, which includes a health history and emergency care plan, is required for each participant prior to registration. We require a new student profile prior to each school year.
A maximum of 15 students will be enrolled in each group.
