Night Hike is a unique opportunity for students to learn about nocturnal animals and various senses. Students will learn about the human senses such as how human eyes function at night. They will also learn about different adaptations nocturnal and crepuscular animals have that allow them to become masters of the night. If students aren’t taking Astronomy as another evening program, students will investigate the night sky by learning about constellations and interesting astronomy facts. Students will leave the hike feeling more comfortable outside at night, have a better understanding of their senses, nocturnal animal adaptations, and the night sky.
This evening program will include…
- Sensory awareness activities.
- Nocturnal animal adaptations.
- Identification of constellations (…if Astronomy isn’t chosen as another evening program).
- Student Personal Challenge: Gaining confidence in the dark.
