You need to teach about Vascular plants? Monarch migration? Animal classification? Predator Prey relationships? I can design a program that will fit into your STEM curriculum. Just tell me what you need.
Story time plus a visit from an animal/insect featured in the story.
*Note: if requesting a Monarch program, these are best done mid-July through September when Monarchs are in the Chicago area.
In School Classes
I offer a number of classes geared for pre-school through 5th grade. The classes can fit into your 40-50 minute class periods.
Vascular plants (activity based)
Predator/Prey PPT + activity
*includes animal visit
**best done in Aug/Sept
Summer Camp Programs
I am available to visit Park District camps. I can go on outdoor walks with the children, and counselors to show them how to find cool things in nature. I am also able to do nature crafts. Park District needs to supply materials for any craft activity. Supply list will be given in advance.
What is happening in the world of Monarchs? What can we do to help? What are the best plants to grow for them? If program is scheduled between July-September, there is a possibility that I will be able to bring Monarchs/caterpillars with.
