Dinosaur Dig (3/2/2020)
We will dig into the past and learn about how dinosaurs had a variety of adaptations to eat different things and live in different places. We will search for dinosaur eggs in a scavenger hunt and children will examine fossils and even get to decorate their own seashell necklace to take home!

Shapes & Symmetry (3/9/2020)
We will go on a scavenger hunt to discover shapes around Oxbow. Then we will draw pictures using different shapes, such as lines and circles. We will then have Oxbow’s coding robots follow the path or shape created by your preschooler in a fun, interactive art project.

Buggy Bonanza (3/16/2020)
Children will learn about what characteristics are used to classify insects. We will even get up-close and personal with some of the bugs we feed our Oxbow residents and go on an expedition with collection boxes to search for some ourselves! Lastly, we will create our own 3D bug craft to bring home.

Nature Art Hike (3/23/2020)
We will take a guided hike using tools like magnifying glasses. We will collect natural objects during our hike, like maple seeds and leaves, to bring back to the classroom and use our creative expression to make a “wild” piece of art with our found objects.
