Animal Explorers
Every animal uses senses to explore the world around them. During our animal adventure, children will use their senses to learn more about animals, and the places they call home. They will see some live animals, feel the difference between fur and scales, listen to the sounds animals make, and smell what some of the animals might like to eat. Then the group will work together to compare how different animals use their senses to navigate the world around them. This program is sensory oriented, with time for movement and inquiry. *Please note this program is 30-45 minutes long depending on group needs.
