Magical Monarchs ~ This program consists of two interactive presentations at your location. Your class is provided with the supplies (caterpillar, bug box and milkweed) to observe your caterpillar as it grows, makes a chrysalis and emerges as a beautiful butterfly.  The students then participate in a migration role-play game.  They observe the Monarch tagging, wish the butterfly well and send it off to Mexico.  *Only offered in September due to the monarch’s life cycle.
        
                              



                                                                                 
Skulls and Skeletons ~ Children observe, touch, and compare real animal skulls to their own.  The presentation includes a literature component, song/poem and extension activities.



     
                                                                                           
Super Seeds ~ Eric Carle’s The Tiny Seed starts our seed exploration class. Seed growth, needs and ways they travel are addressed. Children dissect their very own seed and identify the various parts. The class is left with a seed experiment to try on their own.



Spring Nature Walk ~ Hurray! Spring has finally come!



Your students will observe and explore our new season.  A   feltboard poem helps us identify
the signs of Spring.  This is followed by a nature walk at your site. 
We finish with a Spring song and story.  Follow-up materials are provided.




Educational materials and extensions activities are included.  The cost is $30 per presentation. Presentations last approximately 30 minutes.  The cost for Magical Monarchs is $60 because it includes a follow-up presentation.

Nifty Nests and Nestboxes ~ A Big Book reading starts our nest exploration. The nest-building process is emphasized by observing and comparing actual nests.  Classrooms are provided with nesting materials for a follow-up science project.  On-site nestboxes and their observations can be incorporated into this class.  *Available March, April, and May



Terrific Tadpoles ~ Experience the amazing transformation of a tadpole into a frog.  A tadpole, its food, life cycle information, a frog story and a song make this class a “hopping” experience.  A working fish tank is required and can be obtained with a PetsInTheClassroom grant.  Keep in mind the grant process may take up to six weeks.  *Terrific Tadpoles is available from the end of April through June.  There is a $10 charge to cover the cost of tadpoles and plants.
