Box 1: A SENSE of Adventure

Family Getaway @ Home Box 1: A Sense of Adventure
Soundscapes:  Sounds—or the absence of them—can transport us to a specific memory, provide important cues that help us survive, prompt emotional responses, and much more. This lesson will  help you use your sense of hearing to observe your surroundings from new perspectives and to learn about the impacts of sound.

Nature Bingo: Explore the nearby natural world with your family with a low-stakes scavenger hunt twist!

Beginner Birding: Delve into beginner birding with activities like the creation of bird-viewing binoculars and a sketching challenge with your family! Become familiar with the key characteristics that will help you identify different birds. Use the Merlin app Bird ID function by Cornell Lab of Ornithology to identify bird images and learn to engage in citizen science. 

Included in this box:

  • Lessons and activity instructions
  • 4 Nature Journals
  • 4 wood cookies
  • 4 paper binocular kits
  • 8 Nature Bingo cards
  • Bird identification cards and coloring sheets
  • Link to virtual 30-minute guided yoga classes, themed for nature lovers of any age!
