Cocoons Day School Teacher Workshop

Posted by | October 30, 2012

On Thursday, the Reserve's education staff hosted eight teachers from Kennebunk's Cocoons Day School for a full day workshop. The group enjoyed a beautiful October day while exploring the Discovery Program's booklets and backpacks on the trails, experiencing the "Time Travels" treasure hunt on campus, and investigating the intertidal zone at Laudholm Beach.

Teachers also learned about the Reserve's grades K-2 Wild Friend in Wild Places field trip offering, as well as the education kit rentals that provide hands-on classroom learning about trees, estuaries, birds, and mammals. At the end of the day, Paige led the group on a history tour through the barn and farmhouse, sharing the Changing Landscapes exhibits along the way.

Much fun was had by all, and the Reserve is looking forward to seeing Cocoons Day School teachers back on site with their students very soon!
