ALL Grades K-8


All about animals

A general program suitable for all grades levels where we will meet fascinating vertebrates, and maybe even invertebrates.  Discussion is based on grade level, current topics of classroom study and students' interests. We may cover habitats, adaptions, life cycles, geography, classifications, environmental stewardship and food chains.   



Disappearing wildlife
Plants and animals around the globe are disappearing. Meet some animals whose wild cousins are in trouble or causing trouble. What problems are they facing or creating? What can we do to help wildlife?








Wonder about wildlife!
A gentle introduction to the Animal Kingdom for young learners. This general program may touch on life cycles, survival strategies, senses, habitats, food chains, geography and environmental stewardship.





Grade 1


Basic needs of animals
Strand: Life Systems 
Explore the basic needs of animals (water, food, space and shelter) and how each animal is able to meet these needs in the environment in order to survive. How do these needs different or the same to ours? Why is it important for all living things to have a healthy environment? What happens if it changes? What can we do to maintain a healthy environment for wildlife and us?


Keywords/Concepts: healthy environment, basic needs, nutritional requirements





Grade 2


Vertebrate Classifications

Strand: Life Systems

We will explore the typical physical and life cycle characteristics of the 5 vertebrate classes in this program. Invertebrates may be touched on.


Keywords/Concepts: Classification, physical characteristics, behavioural characteristics, care of young





Grade 4


Habitats and Adaptations

Strand: Life Systems

What makes a good habitat? Students will learn the characteristics that make each habitat special and the basic needs a habitat provides its inhabitants. We will explore several habitats and meet the animals that call them home. When we meet these animals we will also investigate the physical and behavioural adaptations in order to show how each animal has developed unique features that enables them to survive in the habitats they are found in.


Keywords/Concepts: Structural adaptations, behavioural adaptations, habitat variations, interrelationships






Grade 6


Vertebrate Classifications

Strand: Life Systems

We will explore the typical physical and life cycle characteristics of the 5 vertebrate classes in this program.


Keywords/Concepts: Diversity, structural, physical, and behavioural characteristics, vertebrates, cold blooded vs. warm blooded





Grade 7


Food Chains

Strand: Life Systems

Meet the players that determine the energy flow within an ecosystems and discover the roles and interactions of producers, consumers and decomposers. Discover what will happen if any part of the food chain is eliminated.


Keywords/Concepts: Ecosystems, communities, populations, consumers, producers, decomposers, energy flow


As our cities grow, we are becoming less familiar and more fearful of the plants and animals with whom we share our Earth.


 Through these interactive programs, we hope to disperse our fears so we can conserve our future.
