Through an interactive, inquiry-driven program using animal specimens and games, students learn how to identify native animals and discuss structures/forms that help them to survive in their habitats. By focusing on common native animals and accessible habitats, this program encourages students to connect with wildlife and builds awareness of the animals that live around us.
