Mosses and Lichens – Thursday, September 12
We start the semester by investigating some of the smallest plants found in your
backyard. Students use microscopes to investigate mosses and lichens (and find out
that lichens are actually two organisms), and create their own living terrarium.
NATURE SCIENCE LABS
Students explore the world around them as they investigate the biology and ecology of plants and animals, and the environment they inhabit. We study what mosses and lichens really are, look at the microhabitats of different bugs, dissect an owl pellet to see what they eat, use microscopes to see the tiny critters that live in a pond, and more! All lab costs are included in registration fee. Course enrollment is limited to 12 students.
