Special thanks to Crayola for supporting our educational outreach.Do you know what kind of habitat you live in?
Keri Maxfield, Art Director at Nurture Nature Center in Easton, came to the Boys & Girls Club of Easton on Friday, March 22, 2019. She worked with club members aged 5 to 10 to do a one hour "Habitats" program with a creative activity.
Members explored local habitats and had discussions about where we live (Pennsylvania), temperate zones (seasons), and what inland means to us. They also explored some animal species and their habitats and created a design that reflected what they learned. Habitats included forests, wetlands, meadows, and farmlands. Other types of local habitats that were mentioned included water, underground, and mountainsides. They learned about Diurnal (active during the day) animals as well like snapping turtles, monarch butterflies, barn swallows, rabbits, and more.
Check out what B&GCE members learned, created, and colored. The collages of local animal habitats came out great.
