Alaskan Animals

January 23 @ 9:25 am - 2:45 pm


Are you ready to investigate the animals that live in Alaska?
Discover more about the animals in our “backyard” in this 3 part workshop and field trip. We will learn about Alaskan animals and their habitats during the workshop time. We will practice our detective skills as we decode animal tracks and furs. We will solve the mystery of what makes each animal uniquely suited for the Alaskan climate. We will stay on the trail of these animals as we discuss migration patterns. We will sleuth out facts as we build our case of animal knowledge. Then on Thursday, January 23rd, we will take a field trip to the zoo for a guided tour with a special behind-the-scenes look at polar bears.
