“A Touch of Nature”

April was an exciting month for Pre-Kindergarten thru fourth grade!  These classes participated in an exciting demonstration by Jerry from “A Touch of Nature”.  This fun filled couple of hours consisted of alligators, spiders, frogs and even a boa constrictor snake!  The facilitator brought in over 20 different animals for the students of ACS to see and learn about.  Yes! Live animals!  The objective was to show the children an innovative, hands-on experience which enhances their animal awareness while developing an understanding and appreciation for all living things.  Not only was this a wonderful enhancement to our Science Curriculum for all grade levels, it also helped develop a stronger vocabulary and hands on understanding for each student.  “A Touch of Nature” offers different types of programs appropriate for all grade levels and meets NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards!  It was an experience our teachers and students will not forget!
