Homeschool Drop-In Program: MAMMALS

  • 30 Jan 2018
  • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Homeschooling families - want to get outside on a science expedition, meet other families, and learn about a topic in-depth with hands-on exploration? We are starting a new drop-in program the last Tuesday of the month. Each program will dive into a different topic, and the curriculum is designed to enrich and expand on STEM standards. 

$5 for a family if you're a member of Tanglewood; if you're not yet a member, $7 for the family.  No registration needed; pay at the door. 

MAMMALS: Learn about the characteristics that make mammals unique! Handle pelts and skulls as we learn about hair, warm blood, dentition, diets, marsupials, and more. Meet some of our mammals up close and personal, and go on a nature trek to look for signs (tracks and scat) of our native mammals. Educator and naturalist Ian McLaughlin will relate concepts to children of all ages, so bring the family and he'll scale the level of discussion to meet them where they are!
