This three-part program for 3rd-5th grade students emphasizes the importance of native plants, native animals, and healthy ecosystems. Students receive a partial day of pre-field trip instruction, followed by a full-day field trip to Oxbow Organic Farm in Carnation, Washington, and a follow-up classroom visit. Curriculum includes a research project, science investigation activities, and poetry writing. The program is free of charge to participating schools.
Students use video technology to observe wildlife in their natural surroundings and learn how animals use habitats when undisturbed by human presence. Curriculum focuses on observation skills and scientific inquiry. Check out the video clips to see what we’ve been learning!
