Animal Habitats

In this presentation, students use inference to determine the ideal place for an animal to live. We bring up to three live animals for students to observe, and we look for clues that determine their ideal shelter and food. Based on the information collected, students are challenged to pick a suitable habitat for each animal. Students also have the opportunity to touch assorted skins, bones, and feathers so they can actually feel some of the characteristics that help these animals survive. A 40-minute introductory version is available for multi-grade reservations.

Please open our Programs-at-a-Glance chart for information about capacity, prices, and appropriate venues and audiences.
