Overview: This NEW school field trip is designed for first grade students to explore the unique ways animals have adapted to life along the Coyote Creek watershed. Students will look and listen for evidence of local wildlife while also having opportunities to touch realia like bones, fur, and other body parts that help protect the animals in this special habitat. All field trips will include opportunities for both physical activity through hiking and movement while also allowing for quiet observation and reflection. 

Educational content supports the following Next Generation Science Standards:

Disciplinary Core Idea: 
LS1.A: Structure and Function: All organisms have external parts. Different animals use their body parts in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move from place to place, and seek, find, and take in food, water and air. Plants also have different parts (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits) that help them survive and grow. (1-LS1-1)   

Cross-cutting Concept: Structure and Function: The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s). (1-LS1-1)
