Earth Place: Wednesday Science Fun - Camouflage

09/08/2010 to 09/08/2010

10 Woodside Lane, Westport, CT 06880. Phone: 203-227-7253.

Camouflage is a mechanism that many animals use for safety. There are certain colors that blend in better than others. We will try an attempt at camouflaging a sticker animal on an index card. There will be colors hidden in the field - will we be able to find them all? We will play a game of opossum, not moving to avoid detection. When all is finished we will try to hide ourselves from predators as we enjoy some rounds of Camouflage Wednesday Science activities are available once a month. Sign up in advance is required. The drop-off program for children in grades K-5 runs from 4:00 to 5:15 PM.  $8 members, $18 non-member.
