Today’s educators recognize the importance of relating curriculum to real life experiences. Creating an environment to nurture teachable moments. Experiences that bring classroom studies to life and have a lasting impact on a student’s desire to learn.

Our programs bring the TEKS to life by combining: amazing live Animals Ambassadors; lively presentation; a healthy dose of audience participation; and program-specific resource materials, filled with hands-on activities.

These programs are designed to complement existing science, social studies, language arts studies and inspiration for artistic exploration. Programs employ teaching strategies to excite students of different learning styles, presented by experienced professionals. Click to view TEKS we meet.

Upon request, we can incorporate content on Animal Welfare, Bullying Prevention, Emotional Learning, Social Learning, and more depending on what kids are currently learning about.

Display Setup

Choose the right theme for your studies. Works for both large and small audiences. Hands-on opportunities for small groups. Perfect for young children & special-needs students.

Our presentations are a great way to either kick-off or wrap-up animal study units (particularly “bug” & reptile units).

For the hands-on programs, we recommend keeping the group under 25 students for optimum participation.  The smaller the group, the more hands-on opportunities.
