Session 1: June 11-22 — Gardening 101
Children will learn about the life cycle of a seed and the basic needs of plants, all while taking part in the care and cultivation of our school garden that will be used throughout the summer. This session will include a field trip to to Reed Turner Woodland Preserves and a neighboring farm to learn about plants and gardening.
Session 2: June 25-July 13 — Around the World in 10 Days!
(No school July 2-6) During this session, children will explore food, shelter, art, clothing, geography, transportation, and much more as we travel around the continents. Local excursions will take us to the Japanese Gardens at the Chicago Botanic Garden as well as the Viking Treasures and Irish Boutique in downtown Long Grove.
Session 3: July 16-27 — Animals, Animals Everywhere!
We’ll take underwater adventures to examine sea life, we’ll learn about things that fly (bugs, birds, bats and more) and we’ll travel back in time to look at the largest animals of all — the Dinosaurs! Our adventures will take us to the Wildlife Discovery Center and a neighboring farm to learn about bees.
Session 4: July 30-August 10 — All Things Science
These two weeks will be spent experimenting, with the only limit being that of our imaginations! We’ll learn about outer space, machines, bubbles and more! In addition to our field trip to Wagner Farm for this session we will walk to the Long Grove Coffee Company to learn about the science of cooking.
