April 2017 Theme

Wild WestOur April Theme:
The American West

     Let’s go to the mountains, the forests and the deserts of the American West!  The Rocky Mountains were formed millions of years ago, and are home to fascinating animals & fragile plants.  Great evergreen forests grow in this region; some have the largest and oldest trees on Earth!

     Out West, we also find the high desert steppes, arid deserts and plateaus.  Our deserts are imbued with Native American history, artwoDinosaurrk and music.  They are home to strange desert creatures & plants too.  Perhaps most fascinating of all are the animals that used to roam the West: Dinosaurs!
