Senior Elementary Homeschool Winter

Thursday, December 10, 2020 | 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

$60 – $80
Guided Hikes, Families

Thursdays | December 10, January 14, and February 11

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.

Winter Survival

To survive the cold of winter, animals must hibernate, migrate, activate, or die. Together, we will meet a Center animal and, while staying active outside, explore the strategies used by native mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, plants, and insects to survive in a frozen landscape.

Wolf and Deer: An Adventure in Interdependence

Legends, facts, folklore – the controversial Timber Wolf is part of Wisconsin’s history and future. Using simulation and hands-on discovery, students will begin to the understand the intertwined lives of the deer, the wolf, and the coyote and learn about how these animals benefit from each other in a sustainable way.

Lake Michigan’s Winter Shoreline

Students will have the opportunity to explore the the world of winter in the beautiful setting of Lake Michigan’s frozen tundra. As we hike the beach, we will note the change in the lake’s winter landscape and learn about the forces of nature that create ice formations.

*Winter programming is weather dependent and monthly subjects may vary according to weather*
