Digging Up the Dirt on Soil
Students will explore the microscopic world of soil in the garden. The soil on our planet has been around for millions of years in one form or another. We will look at the organisms living the soil and what they do for it and how soil can change over time. This will be a dirty outdoor session so come prepared.
Nature Inspired Art
Students will explore the natural world and use their observations to create a work of art. Recognizing cycles and the living organisms that make up an ecosystem is important to truly appreciate the world around us. We will create written art and visual art in this session.
