The I Think Green Program engages youth in investigating how living things interact with each other and with their environment. This program includes four tracks: 1) worms, 2) butterflies, 3) insects and 4) Nature Detectives. All four tracks are aligned to Illinois State Goals and follow a sequence of four 40-60 minute investigations in which youth practice observation skills, conduct hands-on investigations with living things, explore different life cycles, identify how living things function/adapt/change, and compare how living things interact with each other and with their environment.
