NEW: EcoTarium Offering Children Chance to Explore Animal Habitats

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

 

Worcester's EcoTarium is hosting a new series of small afternoon classes designed to provide an intimate setting for child-driven exploration into the topics of animal habitats and tracking.

Class topics are centered around natural science education by allowing children to explore the habitats of native animals on the EcoTarium property, study how species adapt to changing seasons and conditions, and examine and analyze clues they leave behind.

All classes take place on consecutive Wednesdays beginning October 10 and ending November 7, all beginning at 3:00 and ending at 4:30. The classes include, in order: 

Insects, which involves collecting insects in the EcoTarium's Meadow and Woods.

Water Habitats: Pond, Stream and Ocean, where children will learn about the daily lives of crabs, sea stars, Mussels, and other tide pool creatures.

Changes in Seasons, which teaches students how different creatures survive and adapt to changing seasons in New England.

Tracking Basics, which involves searching for and learning about animal prints and tracks.

Dinosaur Tracking, whiere children will learn about Dinosaur tracks and how they can be used to discover more things about the creatures.

The program is designed with homeschooling families in mind, but is open to all. Each 90 minute class is limited to 15 participants ages 6-12. Children will participate in learning groups of ages 6-8 and ages 9-12. The cost is $35 per class for non-EcoTarium members and $25 for EcoTarium members.
