What lives in this Pond? Come to Franklin Farm in Cumberland and learn about the organisms that live in and around a summer pond system. Children will encounter dozens of species as they explore the pond and the surrounding meadow. They will observe animal behaviors and have opportunity to gather and record data, form opinions, test their theories, listen to each other, re-test their theories, and draw new conclusions about life near a pond.
This is a novel experience in playing outside, making new friends, and building background knowledge in the life sciences.
