Dynamite Defenses

Grades: PS-2nd
Program length: 30 or 45 minutes
Audience size: minimum 10, maximum 30

Animals are always on the lookout for danger. They use their senses, body coverings, and behaviors to protect themselves. Whether showing their teeth and claws, oozing slime, hiding in their shells, or simply holding still to blend in, every animal has a way of keeping safe. This program includes biofacts and an open-ended craft.

Habitat Engineering

Grades: PS-2nd
Program length: 30 or 45 minutes
Audience size: minimum 10, maximum 30

Get excited about engineering and all the creative ways to build animal habitats! Students will consider the four needs all animals have (food, water, shelter, and space) and the specific needs of individual animals. This program includes biofacts and a chance for students to build unique miniature habitats (students will not take habitats home, but teachers are welcome to take pictures to share with students and their families.)
