Senior Elementary Homeschool Winter
Thursday, December 8, 2022 | 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$75.00 – $105.00
Thursdays | December 8, January 12, and February 9
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.
December 2022 | Predator-Prey Relationships
Examine the interrelationships between predators and prey during winter. While exploring outside we will experience a camouflage trail and look for signs of predators and prey. Learners will also meet one of our animal ambassadors and discover if it’s a predator, prey, or both!
January 2023 | Ponding Through the Year: Winter
Though there’s ice on top of the ponds, life goes on underneath! Learners continue their study of the ecosystem of ponds using the skills they learned in September. We will meet one of our animal ambassadors that can live in the pond and discover how they would have survived winter.
February 2023 | Snowshoeing 101
Explore the beautiful winter setting of our forests, fields, and lake by snowshoe! Weather permitting, learners will strap on snowshoes to explore winter in Wisconsin. We will observe how plants and animals adapt to winter and search for any tracks or traces left behind by active animals.
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.
