New York City is a concrete jungle, but plant and animal life is all around us! Local flora and fauna will come alive as children learn about and interact with the plants, trees, insects, and animals around them. Children will dig in the dirt, examine plant life in the city, plant their own indoor mini-gardens, look closely at the life cycle of a plant, become stewards of local trees, and spread the seeds of their newfound knowledge of plants… all over our great urban landscape.
They will also explore the natural habitats around us, go birding around NYC, and find out about what makes the New York City area a unique spot for wildlife.

Outdoor quests will include hunting for species in local parks and gardens, nature walks, birdwatching, a wildlife treasure hunt.

Possible field trips: Visit a community garden; study and sketch at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden; visit a rooftop farm or garden, such as Brooklyn Grange; visit Central Park Conservancy, Prospect Park Audubon Center, Green-Wood Cemetery (to see the monk parakeet colony) New York Aquarium, Governor’s Island, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge Center, Great Kills Park

New York City is a young builder’s dream. Children will explore varying architectural styles in Brooklyn and the city at large, from the tall towers of Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn to the sedate brownstones of residential NYC, while deepening their concepts of geometry and physical science. From our very own windows, they can watch a building grow from the ground up! They will go on scouting trips and then come back to build models from their photographs and sketches, build towers and structures with blocks and other building materials, and enjoy art and photography, all while broadening their builder’s vocabulary.

Outdoor quests will include hunting for the basic components and shapes that make our buildings stand tall; counting, comparing, and charting Downtown Brooklyn’s skyscrapers over the last several years; looking at the skyline from the perspective of a young architect.

Possible field trips: Walk under and across the Brooklyn Bridge, local walks to compare and contrast various architectural styles, visit the High Line, various museum exhibits of NYC over time.
