This week our naturalists learned all about the squirrels of northern Michigan, and why fall is their favorite season! We read Sara Squirrel and the Lost Acorns by Julie Sykes and Catherine Walters. Inside we worked on our sewing skills and foraged for acorns in our fall sensory bins. We went for a stroll through the leaves and used our tracking skills to find signs of squirrel activity like acorn caches. Before we headed back to the Nature Center we made sure to stop by our favorite log for some investigation and excavation.
Keep checking back every week to follow the Knee-High Naturalists on all of their adventures!
