In this program, students explore the unique ecology of winter in their classroom and the school yard. They compare the ways that modern and colonial humans, as well as wildlife and farm animals, have adapted to survive the cold weather months. Through a series of demonstrations students learn to identify the winter cycle and relate it to the annual farm cycle at Casey Farm. In the schoolyard, they learn how to track animals, act out predator prey relationships, explore microclimates, and if conditions permit, study ice and snow.
