Our 3rd - 5th graders had a great time with Madison on Thursday during our "Ohio Mammals" walk! Once again, Madison held a great discussion on the different types of mammals in our own backyard, why conservation is very important, and so much more! We even learned why Oak Openings (and the surrounding Metroparks in our area) is such a unique wonderful place for wildlife to thrive and grow. Thank you again so much, Madison!! We all had a great time and you did a phenomenal job!
Here the kids got to see the difference between a herbivore deer skull and omnivore coyote skull by showing their teeth. Can you tell how they are different?
Madison was showing our 3rd - 5th graders how to spot different animals in the wild. Although frogs are not mammals, we still had fun trying to spot them!
We spotted a Blue Huron by Mallard Lake, so Madison taught the kids to walk like a one!
The Oak Openings region is such a beautiful place! We are so thankful for the opportunity to enjoy the nature walks, and really enjoyed Madison as our guide. We look forward to our "Endangered Species" walk in July! For grades K - 3 it will be on Tuesday, July 13th from 1-2pm, and for grades 3 - 5 it will be on Thursday, July 22nd from 1-2pm. Hope to see you there!
Make sure to register for the walk if you haven't already signed up!
