Catamount Cubs: What do plants need to survive?

December 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


What are the parts of a plant?

December 12th – 10:00-11:30am

You and your young learner will explore what plants need to survive. Do plants like to eat? How do they get their food? Come with us for a hike and fun! 

Welcome to a new way to explore nature with your favorite toddler! Each 1.5 hour Cubs session allows you and your early learner to have authentic, age-appropriate, nature-based experiences in a setting that is both wild, safe, and familiar. Catamount Institute’s experienced teacher naturalists and scientists will use daily themes to guide learning in the park. A typical session opens with free- play sensory stations before circle time with songs and movement, followed by a guided nature exploration activity through woods, creeks, and meadows. Splash in the creek and slide on ice as the program changes with the seasons. Dress for the weather as we are often 100% outdoors, though indoor spaces and restrooms are available. Our academic standards-based lessons provide hands-on experiences for getting to know the plants and animals who call Colorado home. Songs, hikes, crafts, science experiments and scavenger hunts with be our tools as we explore with our senses. This adult and child nature exploration program is designed to encourage everyone ‘s comfort in the outdoors. Bring your eager questions and your sense of adventure as we explore and engage together and with the natural world.
