Today was our last day of summer camp. We learned about the role of a biologist, animal habitats, and camouflage!
We started the morning by matching animals to their correct habitats, and then looking at the skeletons of different critters:
Where does a polar bear live?
What does a starfish feel like?
Wow, that polar bear has some sharp teeth!
That's much bigger than my skull!
Holy cow, that's a big cow!
Is it smooth or rough?
Next, we visited the Natural Science Research Lab where Heath showed us all the different insects, mammals, and birds the biologists study:
Those beetles are bigger than my hand!
Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!
Checking out the bald eagle!
Birds and mammals everywhere
Next, we learned all about camouflage and how animals blend in to their habitats to avoid being eaten
Can you find the frog?
We then went outside to see which worms camouflage into the Lubbock landscape
Find the worms!
Can you see them?
To finish up the day, we headed over to the Ranching Heritage Center for a nature walk and scavenger hunt:
Do you see something green?
Can you draw a tree?
Finding something old...
Finish your drawings
We had so much fun all week learning about space, animals, dinosaurs, and chemistry! Hopefully we’ll see all the campers again soon! 🙂
