Life At The Pond

From slimy slitherers to puddle dwellers to life on the bank, we will probably get our hands dirty this week! Weโ€™ll gain an appreciation for the plant and animal kingdom as we explore the watery world of the pond. We will go on guided nature walks, paint with mud, make clay sculptures, create our very own pond ecosystem, and so much more as we discover the unexpected life of a pond.
