Jarvie: Mom did you know that there are 4 levels to the forest?
Jarvie: Yah! There is the forest floor, the under story, the canopy and the emergent layer!
Mama: Yah! And each of those layers has a different ecosystem or group of animals living in it!
Jarvie’s eyes dazzling with excitement and conveying agreement to what was just said.
Jarvie: Yah, exactly Mom! Did you know that centipedes live on the forest floor?
Now obviously Jarve had just learned this new material at camp, at Laurel, but the fact that he could retain it, and spit it out 10 hours later was mind boggling. Remember, he isn’t even in kindergarten yet!
