Tuesday: Snow Science
Are all snowflakes really unique? How do they form? We’ll explore freezing and melting today as we investigate snow and ice. 

Wednesday: Animal Hide and Seek
Who is hiding in the snow? What animal evidence can we find? Today we’ll practice following and identifying animal tracks and explore camouflage, too! 

Thursday: Feathered Friends
Not all of our birds fly south for the winter! Today we’ll look for those that stick around (or come to) Maine and learn about how they adapt to the cold.  

Friday: Winter Wildlife
Who is sleeping under the snow? Who is active? After a special meet and greet with an animal ambassador, we’ll hit the trail to search for active animals and cozy winter homes.

Monday: Who needs a habitat?
What do plants and animals need to survive? How can people protect and provide habitat for wildlife? We’ll explore some special habitats and Gilsland Farm and plant seeds to take home. 

Tuesday: Nature Art
We’ll practice observation and naturalist skills today as we use natural objects to inspire and create art both inside and outside! 

Wednesday: Earth Day
Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day! We’ll celebrate and show our gratitude for the earth with a special stewardship project.

Thursday: Springtime Birds
Birds are migrating back to Maine, and even those that stayed the winter are becoming more vocal. We will practice making and identifying bird calls, and will look and listen for birds around Gilsland Farm. 

Friday: Pond Investigations
Now that the ice has melted, we will visit the pond to look, listen, and scoop for creatures! Along the way, we’ll learn about the life cycles of different pond creatures.
