Mammalogy - Home School (1-2:30pm)

Jester, Lewis A., Park, Polk County

Friday, April 19, 2019

Grades K-5

Each program will focus on a different “Ology” or scientific field of study giving students a variety of fun experiences in science learning. We will begin with a set of hands-on learning activities to introduce learners to our topic for the day followed by a field session to view nature first-hand. 

Mammalogy - Learn about mammal’s unique adaptations for survival. We’ll study skins, skulls and scat followed by a hike to search for mammals at Jester Park. 

​Registration - All programs are free but pre-registration is required the Tuesday before each program. Space is limited.   

Parents - You are welcome, but not required, to attend any and all visits with your children and act as a chaperone. If you choose to attend, we would like to stress the importance of your active participation. Please be willing to help with all children, not just your own. We also ask that you turn off all cell phones and other distractions for the duration of the visit.   

Siblings - Children who are not registered for the program should not be brought to class, this includes all siblings.   

Program Times - Please be punctual, as your child may miss some vital information at the start if they are late, and may also cause a distraction for those who are on time. If you will not be attending a visit, be sure to pick your child up on time as well.
