Description

Explore the natural world and the adaptations that allow birds and beasts to thrive. There is a new and different fun take-home project each day. Make plaster casts of animal tracks. Learn how animals protect themselves: survive icy cold like a polar bear and dissect oysters to see how they resist an annoying itch. Build a bird feeder and mix your own seed blend to attract specific bird species. Make recycled paper. Tie-dye t-shirts with vegetable dyes. Test water for pollution, and then build a water filter to remove anything nasty. Construct a bug house for observing real, live bugs. Study the feeding habits of owls and look at the animal bones they leave behind. Learn about geology by growing your own crystal garden and breaking open your own geode. And pan for spectacular gems and minerals that can be found in the Hudson Valley.
