On Wednesday we learned about the differences between insects and arachnids. We got to act out how termites use pheromones to communicate in their colonies, and also got to move like different insects in a six-legged relay race! We also got to create our own insect or arachnid!

Thursday was field trip day! We walked to the Arb and got to explore one of Ann Arbor’s favorite nature parks. We worked on forest animal scavenger hunts, and many of us saw all sorts of different species, even a deer!
On Friday we learned about all different kinds of animals. We made life boxes, which have all four things needed for something to live. We played animal charades and got to act out some of our favorite animals. Finally, we competed in the Animal Olympics, where we got to move and compare ourselves to many native Michigan animals!

We are sad that the summer has come to an end so quickly, but happy we got to make so many new friends! We hope to see old and new faces next year for Camp Explorations, and we hope everyone enjoys the last few weeks of summer!
