Extra time at home with your children may have you stumped on how to keep them occupied. Why not learn some watershed science?
Here’s some ideas to help keep your little conservationists busy:
1. Watch this video to teach them about snapping turtles.
2. Check out this list of species profiles to learn about local plants and animals.
3. Read our blog to teach your little ones about the different swans they may see at the lake! Show them pictures and challenge them to identify which one is which.
4. What’s that goo? Learn about frog, toad and salamander eggs by reading our blog.
5. Grab some markers and get creative while learning about local native plants. Take a photo of the finished product and share with us on social media! Download the full size here.
6. Did you know birds like barn swallows hunt insects while in flight? Learn more in this educational video.
7. Why not try out some eco-friendly crafts? If you have some leaves and a hole punch you can make your own natural confetti. It’s not only simple and free, but also helps tackle plastic pollution.
8. Teach your little ones about love in the animal kingdom right here in the watershed. Learn about turtles, deer, beavers and more.
