The invitation to play and learn with us is always open.
Use these resources as jumping off points for inspired science learning. Activities use simple materials commonly found at home or school.
This program was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services MA-10-18-0192-18, the Canaday Foundation, and the Mergens Foundation.
In each installment, we highlight a different plant or animal and then challenge you to get outside, make observations, and discover incredible wildlife near you. Check it out and let us know what you find in your backyard!
Researched and vetted by ECHO’s Educators, these resources will link you to other incredible online resources for learning and fun. From early learners to adults, there are online resources for everyone.
