Day two of Tails to Tales is busy with animal fun! We started the day with edible science - creating our own snacks: Fish in the Sea. Using rice cakes, blue cream cheese, goldfish and raisins (blub, blub!), each child made her/his own mini sea. They were delicious and fun to eat!
Fur, Feathers and Beyond visited us today. Mr. DiBella brought different kinds of ducks and birds from around the world to teach us about these interesting feathered friends. The children loved the parrot that said hello to them! Ask your child why some birds have curved beaks while others have straight beaks.
Rowanwood Farms was another special guest today! The children loved seeing the two goats that visited. They enjoyed petting the goats, and learning about the goat fibers, goat milk, and milk products.
The children learned all about owls today in science! We learned about their prey, how they hunt, and how they digest their food. Then each child worked with a partner to dissect an owl pellet! It was really exciting to discover hidden animal bones in each owl pellet and use the bone chart to figure out what animal the owl had eaten.
Yesterday, we ended our day with some VERY special guests. We were lucky enough to be visited by the Wolf Conservation Center from Salem, New York! Atka the wolf, and Nakai the wolf pup came to visit us and teach us all about wolves. We can't wait to see what else is in store for the rest of our week here at Tails to Tales!
