Critterman Safari Guides

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 TAKS 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.

Anyone can enjoy these programs!

Just the right size for grade levels! Hands-on opportunities for small groups. Perfect for young children & special-needs students.

This classroom or small group presentation is a great way to either kick-off or wrap-up animal study units (particularly “bug” & reptile units). Let us know what your emphasis is. If your study unit centers around mammals, ask us about our Extra Furry option, for  Texas natives request our Texas Tails.

A hands-on approach is a great way to reach kids with different learning abilities.  For the hands-on show, we recommend keeping the group under 25 students for optimum participation.  The smaller the group, the more hands-on opportunities. 

Substitute a giant 28″ Swampy for the standard 3.5″-6″ stuffed or beanie animal for the Birthday Child for an additional $50.
