We will spend the week outside honing our observation skills as we look, listen and notice signs of life throughout the woods. We will spend time honing our “owl eyes” to search out new feathered friends. 

We'll explore all the inhabitants of a forest through up-close examination, sensory learning, and games. The WHS woods are filled with inspiration to create beautiful works of art.
