Pondering Life! (Macro-Invertebrate Collection of Pond Water)
For children ages 5-7. Children experience the wonders of the insect world. What does it take to be an insect? Are all insects alike? Observe them with microscopes and a magnifying lens, use nets and Guide books to catch and identify some in the Butterfly Garden. Lastly, the children will go on a hunt to “Build a Bug” using pieces of nature (offered by the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center).
