Wild Wonders

For children entering grades 3–5

Put on your hiking gear and travel across the continents to explore various habitats and their animal species. We will learn about a new habitat every week and will delve deeper into the native species of animals and insects. As zoologists, we will analyze mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians, fish, and insects and their unique adaptations that help them to survive in certain climates and terrains. How are mountain goats able to climb on a ledge only a few inches wide? Why do tigers have scent glands between their toes? These are just some of the questions that will be answered in this exciting yet educational wildlife expedition. Research will be conducted through reading, images, maps, and diagrams, and there will be opportunities for students to conduct more independent research on animals in which they have a strong interest.
