Kestrel Preschool Adventure: Nature Design

Through play, stories, and hands on experiences, we will learn about the lives of some local animals. Each day, we will meet at least one animal and will make something original and creative based on that animal’s body or behavior. We might meet a snake and feel its skin, and then make clay snakes with scale patterns. We might observe insects and then make and test lightweight insect wings. This program is based on spontaneous experiences and discoveries to allow plenty of room for individual ideas and imagination.
