Kids' Korner at Macdonough School

A Before and After School Program of the Northern Middlesex Y

Nature Learning with Everyone Outdoors! May 6, 2013

Filed under: Site Happenings — KK @ MacD @ 9:30 pm

On Wednesday, the Youngers were able to explore the natural surroundings of Macdonough School and also examine some pond creatures with Lucy and her helper.  One group would walk around the school grounds while the other group explored the vernal pool creatures; then they’d switch.  The children were able to identify different plants, trees, and insects around the school that they had been shown in the past.  Great memory, guys!  With the vernal pool creature, the children were able to use pond scopes with magnifying lenses to further explore the different animals.  The children also used the scopes to magnify findings during their trek around the park. Some parents even took some time to check out the interesting pond creatures.
