Students will become more familiar with species local to them and how to research and collect data. The art projects will help them remember details as we introduce each animal. The field trips will teach self-motivation, time-management, and safety. Students will feel empowered by simple steps they can take to protect the environment through habitat creation and protection, reducing waste, and collecting data for citizen science.
We will complete art assignments during live sessions. Students will be sent a full list of supplies needed. The field trips will be assigned a week in advance to be completed before the weekly share session and can be done in most backyards, parks, or nature preserves. Field trips can be completed in as little as 15 minutes, but they can spend as much time as they would like.
