Some of our Traveling Scientist programs have changed grade levels to better support the Next Generation Science Standards. Download a complete list of changes here.
Students learn about different kinds of rocks and their formation through interactive hands-on lab stations that let them touch and experiment with a variety of rocks and minerals.
Rockin' Geology support 4-ESS1-1 and 4-ESS3-1 of the Next Generation Science Standards.
Is all of our trash really waste? Rethink Resources uses trash to explore the connection between humans and the natural world. Through hands-on activities that focus on the five R's: Reduce, Reuse, Rot, Repurpose, and Recycle, students will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of natural resources and how we can conserve them by producing less waste.
Rethink Resources supports 4-ESS3-2 of the Next Generation Science Standards.
Body of Knowledge – New Grade for 2017-2018
Students investigate the roles of their digestive, excretory, circulatory and respiratory systems using hands-on activities. Through a deeper understanding of organ function, students gain a greater appreciation for personal fitness. Science, health education and physical education skills are enhanced in fun and engaging ways.
Body of Knowledge supports 4-LS1-1 and 4-LS1-2 of the Next Generation Science Standards.
Live animals are presented to you and your students by our trained Traveling Scientist. Learn about the unique characteristics and behaviors of mammals, reptiles, birds, and other species of the animal kingdom.
Birds of Prey
Hawks, owls, and other raptors are brought into the classroom to teach students about the roles these predators play in the balance of nature. Students visit lab stations which include experiencing hawk vision and discovering the diet of an owl through an owl pellet dissection.
