      Fall Class Topics

This fall we will be learning all about Habitats! Come learn about one, two, or join us all six weeks and become a habitat hotshot. We will learn about what these habitats look like, who lives there, and what makes those animals unique.

Rainforests: In this class we will be learning about rainforests around the world. They are full of colorful birds and interesting reptiles! Come learn about these awesome creatures with us!

Deserts: Who can survive in a dry, hot desert? Come learn about desert animals with us this week. Do they need water? Where do they go to cool down? We will answer all these questions and more!

Swamps: Swamps are mucky, ooey and gooey and filled with many stinky creatures. Come to this class to learn about the exceptional animals that live in swamps.

Forests: There are forests all over the world from here in California to across the world in China. In this class we will learn about creatures who live up high in the trees as well as ones who navigate the forest floor.

Ponds and Streams: We have ponds and streams all around us here in California but what animals live in them? In this class we will meet some local friends from river and pond habitats.

Savannah: The savannah is a unique habitat full of tall trees and tall giraffes! But who else lives on the Savannah?  Come to the last Little Peeps class of the year to find out!
