Snow Science: We are off on an exploration into the world of snow and ice in the field, forest, and stream. We’ll make our own crystals and discover the insulating power of snow.

Migrate, Hibernate, Activate – Who does what?: We will investigate the tracks of animals that stay active, create a shelter to hibernate in and explore the migration of some of our favorite animals. Along the way we will learn about the amazing adaptations animals use to survive the winter.
