Homeschool students/families are invited to join Severson Dells Nature Center for a variety of lessons throughout the 2019-2020 school year. This is a great opportunity to get your homeschooler(s) involved in hands-on, minds-on environmental education throughout the year. All lessons are at least partly outdoors, and most are entirely outside, so be sure everyone is dressed for the weather (closed-toe shoes required). For students ages 8 years and older.January 16: Outdoor Skills II: Mastery of Fire – when we consider the course of humanity’s development, mastery of fire was one of the big leaps. Besides providing warmth, light, a means to cook food, and even a way to protect oneself, it was also a tool that helped us get food, modify the landscape, and create. As we learn the history of fire and its many uses, we will be putting ancient skills to the test as each participant makes a basic tool that our ancestors would’ve mastered: a coal-burned spoon.
