We have an air conditioned indoor classroom
We will focus on basic animal groups and everyday we will explore a different animal family. Bug Day – Reptile Day – Amphibian Day – Mammal Day – Fish & Bird Day
Each day begins with a discussion about the animal family for the day. There will be games like frog races and tortoise races with real tortoises, and crafts like designing a habitat, activities such as dissecting owl pellets, observing insects with microscopes. We also usually have a animal in the classroom for the day.
Every day is a different animal adventure with some hands-on interaction when it supports the lesson plan and with a select group of our animals. Please note this is not a ‘petting zoo’ situation.
We will have a bug lab!! There is only one other in BC and we are thrilled to be able to offer this amazing opportunity for your kids to examine and study the vast world of insects in this unique interactive buggy adventure.
Be Curious ! There is so much to Learn!
Keep your kids learning, having fun, and encourage their curiosity about the natural world but enrolling them in this unique experience of animal adventures.
Every day is a new adventure with a different animal family – the world of insects – mammals – reptiles – amphibians – birds.
