PROJECT DESCRIPTION:


Together with the Leslie Science and Nature Center, we will create a food chain using LIVE animals (such as hawk/owl, snake, frog, spider and roach). Starting with a roach as our decomposer, we will take a close look at 5 live animals on a guided tour up a food chain. On our journey we will discuss how these animals are all connected and learn about the delicate balance that allows them to survive both individually and as wildlife sharing a habitat.
