This 90-minute lesson is an introduction to natural science that encourages the youngest students to use their five senses while studying the natural world. Students will listen for birds and frogs, smell flowers and pine needles, and use their eyes, aided by simple magnifying glasses, to make their own observations and discoveries. Many hands-on activities will help young children to feel comfortable in the outdoors, and to appreciate the beauty and fragility of our environment.
