Nature Investigators for Homeschool Families

with Nicole Danielson


Class is canceled

In this class, older students will gain a deeper level of understanding and appreciation for natural communities and ecosystems. In particular, we will explore concepts relating to habitats, forest succession, wetlands, and biological adaptations. Classes will include guided group activities, investigations using the scientific process, teacher and student led demonstrations, and explorations of forest, field, and aquatic habitats. If there is interest, additional home study ideas, activities, and resources can be provided!
