Discover more about furry, scaly, slimy, and feathery creatures. Perform real animal behavior experiments to learn about the animal kingdom and how these creatures behave and live in their environments. This class combines learning about animals with several fun art projects you can take home. For example, we will make animal track molds, paint them, and also hunt for real tracks on the grounds of MNTC. We will learn the Japanese art of Gyotaku (fish printing) using preserved fish and then dissect our specimens. We will have fun learning how to safely interact with and handle a variety of small live animals in the classroom. (Students will have the opportunity to participate in voluntary supervised animal dissections-alternative activities will be available for those who do not wish to dissect).
