The Estuary Partnership Education Team has been staying at home, like most of you. So we've been thinking of activities to keep you and your "littles" engaged in learning about science and nature in and around your home. Here are some ideas!
Can YOU drink as much water as a house plant? Andy shows us this fun and hydrating challenge. Learn the connection between plants soaking up water and healthy rivers!
Make Your Own Bird Feeders
Paige shows you three different ways you can make your own bird feeder with things you probably already have around your home!
Meet a Plant Monday
Anne Marie kicks off this weekly series on native plants that you might find in your neighborhood. Meet Red Flowering Currant!
Paige gives an introduction to a native deciduous tree with giant leaves: the Big Leaf Maple!
McKenzie introduces Thimbleberry, with its big soft leaves and tasty red berries.
Meet Oregon grape! Sam (& Sabine) introduce us to Oregon's state flower and it's cheery bright yellow flowers.
Meet Pacific ninebark! Andy introduces us to this moisture-loving shrub.
Paige introduces us to Nootka Rose, a hardy wild rose native to the Pacific Northwest. Find its blooms around your neighborhood May through July!
No matter the age, students can learn much about something through the skill of observation. By watching animals on a live webcam, kids can make discoveries about animal habitat & adaptations, what they eat, how they raise their young, and much more! Find a list of 25 great animal observation webcams on WeAreTeachers.com. And download our handy Animal Observations Worksheet to keep track of their observations.
