Grade Level 3 - 5
Lunch & Learn Program:
Ocean Food Chain
Enjoy your lunch as we take a closer look at what types of things may be on the menu in an ocean food chain. The video along with the opportunity to interact with a living salt water critter helps students discover the interconnectivity of all living things and the importance of being good stewards to all environments.
The largest whales in the ocean and the smallest mussels in a river both depend on plankton as a food source. Students work in teams to create their own plankton as they participate in the Great Phytoplankton Race.
Build a Jelly
In this interactive program, students become the parts of a jelly that swim, sting, eat and excrete. Students learn how jellies travel thousands of miles, feed, defend themselves and reproduce even though they are spineless, brainless and heartless.
Students meet a variety of reptiles and amphibians, learn about the different habitats they live in, their roles in the environment and the unique adaptations which help them survive.
