Observing the Animals of Vineyard Field—Like a Scientist! Children Ages 8-10
Program Leader: Rachel Speckenbach, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
Have you ever watched a robin searching for worms in the soil? Or followed an ant trail to see where it leads? You can learn many different things about an animal just by observing its behavior. Join Rachel on a journey into Vineyard Field, behind the museum, to study the different animals that live there and learn why they do what they do. We’ll learn about patience, necessary observation skills, and how to record notes like a scientist.
