These programs fit well with the following Brownie Try-Its: Animals, Earth & Sky, and Eco-Explorer. Activities also fit well with Camp Fire USA programs, youth groups, and Homeschool organizations
Come learn some basic animal facts. Then, we'll practice observing animals in the farm area, and take a hike through the forest. There will be time to warm up inside and practice our animal sounds, movements, and maybe even learn some animal songs, too!
Earth & Sky:
Be scientists and learn to make observations of what is happening down in the earth and up in the sky! We'll make transects of the area, observe erosion and even make a sedimentary rock to take home. We'll also look up to learn about clouds and see what's flying around.
Be ecologists and study how plants and animals live together in an environment. Learn about habitats and food chains through art, games, and songs. On our hike through the forest, we'll learn to make field observations of wildlife and plants, and then record them in special field journals.
