Five days, five places, one awesome camp! Campers, ages 6-9, will spend a day at each of the following locations: Lincoln Children's Museum, Lux Center for the Arts, University of Nebraska State Museum (Morrill Hall), Lincoln Children's Zoo and Pioneers Park Nature Center.
The Elephant Trunk contains five inquiry-based activities, which support state science standards, and two curriculum guides, 4-5th and 6-8th grades. Students use fossils to discover habitats of elephant species along with other animals living at the same time. Students also learn about geology, teeth, elephant behavior, and conservation.
