K – 4th Grade Class: Interesting Insects

Playing a matching game will help young learners understand what makes insects different from other animals. And finally, creativity fills the room as the students make their favorite insect using craft materials.

Studying the eye is difficult to do – that’s why we bring the eyes to you! Come join us for a dissection program focusing on the eye and how it functions.
