Each kit is available for check out and includes a short video about items in the box and hands on learning tools to help bring science to life! Each kit is $55 to rent for 3 days. Kits are designed for 5 persons. Late return of kit subject to additional fees. Adaptations: Fur pelts, replica skulls, and bones help learners see how each adaptation is needed for animals to survive in their habitats. Weather: Use scientific equipment like meteorologists to determine what is happening in the atmosphere and how that will affect our weather tomorrow. Soil or Water Investigation: Test your soil and water using nutrient indicators and determine if these areas are healthy enough for plants and/or animals. Birds of Prey: Take an up-close look into the different adaptations that make birds of prey perfect predators! Dive into an owl pellet and see the bones of small critters that they caught. Seeds to Trees: Journey with us using math and investigations to learn how trees grow from seeds and into the tall sturdy giants we know in our yard. Look into what is happening under the bark and leaves that help plants grow. Sensing the Outdoors: Look, smell, touch, taste and feel your way outdoors. Become more aware of your surroundings by using all your senses. To reserve a kit, please contact: Meghan Meredith mmeredith@pdhp.org 847-579-4183 Fall 2020 • Park District of Highland Park 48
