Thursdays | March 9, April 13, May 11
The 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.
March 2023 | The History of Maple Sugaring
We celebrate this time of year by discovering the natural history of maple sugaring. We will focus on the traditions of maple sugaring with a Native American legend and participate in an ethnobotany hike to the wigwam. Learners will also enjoy a tasty treat that has been passed down through generations.
April 2023 | Ponding Through the Year: Spring
Spring means new beginnings and the awakening of small creatures living in the ponds. Learners will collect data about the ponds one final time to discover what is swimming underneath. We will conclude this study by comparing and contrasting what they found in all three seasons.
May 2023 | Herpetology: The Study of Reptiles & Amphibians
Engage in a hands-on investigation of our resident animal ambassadors. Learners will discover the many adaptations, structural and behavioral, that these creatures possess in order to thrive in their ecosystem. We will hike through the animals’ habitats in search of their wild counterparts.
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.
