|Seasons of the Forest|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
This Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge fieldtrip can be conducted at any season. It includes a nature hike where students discover how plants have changed for the season. Students document one element for each letter of the alphabet. A photo is taken of each of these elements for use in the classroom later (create booklet or display board). A puppet show characterizing how wildlife insulate, migrate or hibernate for the winter, prepare for the spring, etc. is presented. In order to incorporate the senses, mammals' furs can be touched and a smelling activity is available. For pre-K and Kindergarten.
