K-2nd: Enjoy story time with Bella the Begonia and Carlos the Cactus as we learn about where plants and animals go during the winter. We will create our very own prairie scene and explore factors that effect a plant’s growth and behavior. Join us as we discover a plant’s basic needs for survival and plant veggies that are strong enough to thrive in the winter.

3rd-5thEver wonder where the green goes during the winter? Join us as we reveal the differences between dormancy and evergreens and their effect on a prairie during winter. Dissect a pine cone and discover fun facts about how plants adapt to survive the winter along with what happens to a food chain, even when all the food is gone.

6th-10thWinter is coming so join us as we explore what life would be like if the world was winter all year long. How would this effect our food supply? How would this effect an ecosystem and all living things? We will use high-tech scientific tools to explore the plants in our prairie and investigate how our LEED Platinum building gives back to the planet.
