Tuesday, February 22:
Snow Science: We are off on an exploration into the world of snow and ice in the fields, forests and in the stream. We’ll be making our own crystals and discovering the insulating power of snow.

Wednesday, February 23:
Migrate, Hibernate, Activate: Who does what? We will investigate the tracks of animals that stay active, create a shelter to hibernate in and explore the migration of some of our favorite animals. Along the way we will learn about the amazing adaptations animals use to survive the winter.

Thursday, February 24:
Maine Birds in Winter: Which birds will we find at our feeders, or in the forest? Join us as we observe Maine’s winter birds, their foods and shelters. We will dissect owl pellets and make bird feeders.

Life Under the Ice: Spend the day ice fishing, but not just for fish! We will set traps and discover what other animals stay active under the ice all winter long. We’ll play winter games and maybe catch some fish!
