Springtime Science: Dirt, Bugs, and Blooms w/ Ola (Grades 3-5)
Do you like getting your hands dirty? When you see a weird bug, do you take a closer look while your friends run the other way? Do you love when the snow melts and green things start growing again? If so this workshop is for you!
We will hatch praying mantises, build bee homes, germinate seeds, and dissect flowers. Along the way, we’ll learn about ecosystems, pollination, insect-plant relationships, capillary action, and much more.
Please note: this workshop really is messy and requires some forethought!
Young botanists and entomologists will need:
– a sunny windowsill to grow plants
– to choose whether to hatch their mantis egg sacs indoors (in a jar or other container) or select a spot outdoors (outer windowsill, garden corner)
In addition to the original material pick-up, BASEC will supply and deliver some materials (live flowers) on the day the materials are needed.
This class is designed for students in Grades 3-5.
*Workshop materials are included with purchase and will be made available for pick up (see below)
