Class Summary: Eager to take a journey inside the animal kingdom? This class does just that! Through the course students will explore various types of animals and creatures by discovering life inside a virtual animal kingdom. Students will view replicas of animals to learn about their unique physical features, and to help classify different species. In addition they will learn all about the circle of life and how it relates to both animal and human existence!
Educational Value: From their ability to adapt based on their environments, to their need for food and water for survival, animals are much like humans in many ways. This course will introduce students to the ways in which animals are different from humans. The children will learn about certain features of animals such as camouflaging abilities and life cycles and spans and how each differs from one type of creature to the next. Students will walk away with a whole new outlook, and perhaps appreciation, for the creatures of this world.
