April 1, 2020 Program: Animal and Plant Adaptations

No foolin'! Students will ‘meet’ a variety of Georgia animals and learn of amazing ways these creatures survive in their habitats. Bringing those concepts to life through a visit to Elachee’s Live Animal Exhibit and a hike in Chicopee Woods, students will have many opportunities to explore specific characteristics of both plants and animals found in our diverse northeast Georgia forest habitat.

About Elachee’s First Wednesday Home School Program Series

Elachee is pleased to offer a four-session program series for students in Kindergarten through 6th Grade (ages 5 to 12 who will be grouped by age).

Register for one or more of these half-day, accredited STEAM-based environmental education programs. Each session is $20. Or, for $60 register your student for the entire program series!
