Senior Elementary Homeschool Fall

Thursday, September 14, 2023 | 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

$75.00 – $290.00


Thursdays | September 14, October 12, and November 9

Our Senior Elementary Homeschool Program is designed for students ages 9-11 to delve deeper into the natural world. Alongside experienced naturalists, students will explore habitats including the shore of Lake Michigan, ponds, prairies, and forests. We offer a variety of interactions with nature such as hikes, field data collection, and live animals.

September 14 | Amazing Insects and Their Relatives

An amazing 80% of the animals on earth are insects and their relatives. We’ll search the forest for soil creatures under logs, sweep the prairie with field nets, and visit the pond to strain for pond creatures. By spending time in each habitat, we’ll discover these creatures’ adaptations that help them survive and learn about their contributions to the Earth’s ecology.

October 12 | Land, Wind, and Water – Interactions that Form Our Landscape

Our land was shaped by forces long ago and continues to be formed by these forces today. At the shoreline of Lake Michigan, students will discover the concepts of weathering, erosion, and deposition, and search for examples of chemical and physical change, including evidence of Wisconsin’s glacial past.

November 9 | Owls: Predators of the Sky

Students will have the opportunity to observe the Center’s live owl ambassadors, as well as study skins and artifacts, to identify owl characteristics and adaptations that make them such unique and successful hunters. Additional discovery is highlighted through pellet dissection and in outdoor field studies.

Registration is now open for fall only or the full year.
