Topics and Recommended Grade Levels

Programs are adapted to each grade level.

Wonder Worms!
What makes healthy soil? We explore soil, learn about worm anatomy, and interact with them in the worm bin. Suggested Grade Levels: Preschool-3rd grade

  • NEW: Try our scaled-up Worms and Decomposition lesson for 4th & 5th grades. We explore how in nature there is no such thing as waste and highlight worms and decomposers as the clean up crew in this closed loop cycle. We target NGSS Performance Expectation 5-LS2-1 with this in-class experience.

Seeds and Me
Are seeds only for planting? No! We use seeds every day! We will explore familiar seeds, learn where they come from, and even dissect a seed to discover what’s inside! Suggested Grade Levels: PreK to 5 

The Buzz on Pollination
Animals need plants to survive, but do plants need animals? We explore the magic of pollination through an interactive game and discover the role of pollinators in growing the fruits we know and love. Suggested Grade Levels: 1 to 4

Calling All Birds

What makes beaks unique? Students become scientists as we discover how birds have adapted to their environment to feed themselves.  Suggested Grade Levels: PreK-5
