Sadly the closing of the schools and many other venues means that we're not able to get out to do our educational programs. Usually in the Spring most elementary schools are doing animals or environment for their science curriculum. So since we can't get out to schools and kids are stuck at home for the rest of the academic year, we've decided to put together a series of YouTube videos on animal/wildlife/environmental topics utilizing our educational animals.
Our first video is on Animal Adaptations. Please keep in mind that we are pretty low tech here (I only had my phone to use to take a video) and I'm pretty tech clueless. It was a cold day so we did the video in my living room. Over the next several weeks we're going to post videos on other topics such as Native Species, Reptiles & Amphibians, Invertebrates and Endangered Species.
If interested after each video we've also attached a optional questionnaire you can complete with your child on the content to the talk to review the information. Coloring Sheets for each animal we presented are attached too! Enjoy!
