The Big Backyard
*Outside* Wednesdays, 2:30-5pm Age: 7-10
The “Big Backyard” is an exciting outdoor adventure program designed to get your child into the wild and stoke their curiosity about nature, while also learning about science and math in a fun and creative way. The curriculum has been designed with the New Generation Learning Standards in mind. We will study a section of Central Park using measuring techniques, our five senses to describe our surroundings, and report our observations using different charting methods of how the park changes! At the end of the semester we will find innovative ways to present our findings by creating art using artifacts found in nature, writing poetry inspired by our outdoor exploration or making booklets with graphs, descriptions and drawings. Join us in the Big Backyard! Hourly Cost: $25/hour *Minimum of 4 children required* Note: The May 5th class will be held indoors in a sanitized space that meets CDC requirements for COVID safety.
