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.
Feather Fun – New Grade for 2017-2018
This program better supports the Next Generation Science Standards for 2nd Grade.
Students discover what makes birds unique as they work cooperatively and visit different lab stations to learn about the natural history of birds. Traveling Scientists bring live birds to show the students their special adaptations and habitats.
Feather Fun supports 2-LS4-1 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.
