Our 4 & 5 year old class enjoyed a spring field trip to the Placer Nature Center. Docents led small group sessions in the center’s classrooms, presenting information on local plants and animals through the use of puppets and art activities.
Then we hit the trail in hopes of finding signs of wildlife (and keep out of the poison oak!).
The children were fascinated by the skeletal remains of a deer. Our guide did a great job handling this unique learning opportunity.
She also did a great job of setting the pace for kids who love to run!
We ended the hike with a very special wildlife sighting!
Thank you Placer Nature Center for a great day!
