Inroduction to Animals

Grades K - 2

This program is designed to introduce students to 5 groups of animals; mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. Students will learn about the characteristics that differentiate these classes of animals by seeing live representatives of each group. Other concepts such as basic needs, adaptations, habitats, food chains and predator prey relationships will be discussed. This program may serve as either an introduction or culmination of a special animal study project your class may be involved with.


Reptiles and Amphibians

Grades 2 - 4

Students are introduced to a variety of modern dinosaurs. These cold blooded animals have been on earth for millions of years. This program will introduce students to the fascinating world of herpetology and at the same time dispel some of the myths about an often misunderstood group of animals.


Tropical Treasures

Grades 4 - 6

Tropical Rainforests make up 5% of the earth's surface and support over 50% of the earth's animals and plant life. This program will teach students about the importance of tropical forests and some of the problems that face these critical habitats. Some of the concepts discussed in this program are endangered species, deforestation, water cycles, animal behavior and many more.
