Dates & Themes:
October 2015 - Bats
"Bats eat bugs they don't eat people, bats eat bugs they don't fly in your hair. Bats eat bugs they don't eat people for dinner, and that is why they fly up there." Especially the fruit bat which enjoys a good banana or piece of mango! Come and learn about different kinds of bats and what some of their favorite foods are.
November 2015 - Porcupine
What's that up in the tree? Is it a spiky plant? Is it a large pin cushion? Is it a porcupine hunched over in a ball resting on a branch? Yes, it is a porcupine! The porcupine is fun, interesting, and one of the more bizzare looking animals we study in preschool.
December 2015 - Camels
One hump, two hump, red hump, blue hump? What is that hump for on a camel's back? Did you know they can close their nostrils to keep sand out, or that they have a fifth foot? Join us and learn how to walk.....like a camel.
January 2016 - Owl
Beaks, feathers, talons, oh my! Whooo, could it be? Owls of course! Glide on over to learn more about these mysterious night-time animals.
February 2016 - Otter
Slip...slide...rough and tumble...river otters at play! While survival is serious business, these sleek and sassy mammals always find the time to have some fun! Take a peek with us into the world of the river otter.
