We will use our senses to explore the environment and find some places where animals have everything they need to survive. Students will work scientifically with hands on activities to investigate bugs and learn about animal habitats.
Students will immerse themselves through nature play and discovery to enrich their understanding of the diversity and relationships that thrive within our protected areas.
