Annaliese attends a once-a-week science class that is a wonderful supplement to what we teach at home. At this class they become nature explorers and learn about habitats and ecosystems. From forests to prairies to wetlands, they explore the world around them. They learn songs, finger plays, and stories and discover how animals and plants make up a habitat, and how they adapt to that habitat. They learn how animals that are awake at night cope with living in the dark. They dig into dinosaurs and fossils.They watch the season as it changes into fall and heads toward winter. They talk about our responsibility to nature, and what we can do to help the plants and animals around us. They explore the many different habitats on the sanctuary, and get up close to living animal visitors.
We just love this program. :)
