Enter the imaginary world of… Detective Whoo! There are mysteries to solve, and the legendary owl Detective Sherlock Whoo needs your help! Expand your case file each week with naturalist journals about the forest’s suspects. Learn how to tell the story of what happened by looking at the evidence: bones, tracks, feathers, scat, feeding signs, and more! Make an observation blind so you can watch the scene without being detected. You will use all your senses, even your intuition. The birds will be your allies, alarming at who they see! You’ll have to be sneaky if you want to crack the case without getting caught. No matter how the story ends, the art of deduction is guaranteed to lead you on a thrilling adventure! Our Learning Outcomes: Core Knowledge of the Natural World (Natural History): We learn how to research with field guides and make drawings that convey information. Awareness & Observation (Perception): We learn how to identify natural hazards and expand our senses. We also practice being quiet so we can observe wildlife instead of scaring them away! Ability to Analyze Patterns & Relationships (Ecology): We teach students how to move beyond basic observations to asking the questions that will help them understand connections and come up with deductions. We study the messages birds send to each other, look at animal’s gaits and behaviors, and compare tracks and signs.
