We provide Calgary area schools with in-class science enrichment programs, specializing in insects and other invertebrates and including live animal handling. In other words, we bring bugs into classrooms and your students will have the chance to hold them! The learning is truly hands-on and the real live animals are just the beginning. We also bring interactive curriculum-linked activities like the Ladybug Puppet Picnic for Grade 1 (Needs of Plants and Animals), the Black-light Pollination Hunt for Grade 2 (Small Crawling and Flying Creatures), and a Life Cycle Relay Race for grade 3 (Life Cycles). Multiple styles of learning are activated with games, costumes, microscopes, and more as the students rotate through stations filled with learning that is engaging, unique, and of course, hugely fun.
The specific bugs we bring may vary but typically include isopods, vinegaroons, tarantulas, giant millipedes, darkling beetles and caterpillars. All of them are safe and the children will be closely supervised while interacting with them.
We can even customize activities according to your classroom needs! Some unique ideas have included using insects as high school art drawing subjects, and using tarantulas to talk about overcoming fears of “scary” creatures at Halloween. Kids of all ages are fascinated by bugs and the possibilities for learning are endless. Do you have an idea? Lets talk!
