Live Virtual Field Trips
Want something fun and educational to offer your students? We can live stream from our swamp into your google classroom to interact with your students in real time. Broadcasting from the waters of the marsh, we will show them what lives within the peat of the Everglades, feature animal adaptations, and discuss human impacts to their habitats. Then we will slog through our Cypress Swamp to share the adaptations of the forest and highlight the resources that the native Americans used for survival.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a date for your class. We have limited dates, so hurry to get yours reserved today.
Live Animal Presentations & Custom Programming
We are offering new programs with live animals; do a virtual meet and greet with birds of prey, alligators, and more. Customize the presentation to be geared toward standards you are discussing in your classroom at this time. These presentations are combined with a science-based hands-on activity to further engage your students. Sign up for a custom program only or pair it with the live virtual field trip described below to further emphasize scientific concepts.
