After School Explorers

Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 3:00-3:15 (arriving at Avery) till 5:30 PM 

Ages 5 – 10 yrs old

Join us after school to enhance your child’s afternoon with some outdoor exploration! With a focus on nature based content we include math, reading, writing, literacy, geography, and the arts in order to create a well rounded experience. On any given afternoon you will find us turning over rocks, harvesting from our garden, or simply running through the park while we have fun learning from the world around us.

Monday – Nature Art and Math

Journey through the local ecosystem with hands-on math concepts from complex shapes and symmetry to the Fibonacci sequence. Students will measure, add, subtract, problem solve and investigate how math ties into nature while creating personalized art projects using natural materials.

Tuesday – Words in the Wild

Focus on reading and creating poems and stories with nature as our guide. Students will read about and experience nature to inspire their writing journals and art. Whether your child loves to read or shys away from books, nature can captivate, engage and inspire a love of reading and writing!

Thursday – Scientist Experiments

We will explore chemistry, physics, and biology through creative experiments and projects. Students will learn to understand how to be scientifically minded by asking questions, testing theories, making observations and predicting outcomes.
