Classroom Safaris
 
Programs for 1st Grade
Allow us to give your students a memorable, hands-on experience!
 
Choose from the following exciting Science Safaris.
 
Culture/Social Science
 
American Indian Pow Wow
A unique opportunity for students to learn Native American custom, dance and song by actually doing them in their own classroom! We turn your students into stomping braves and "light as a feather" maidens! more...
 

Earth Science
 
Cool Comets
A unique opportunity for students to create a comet! Find out first-hand about these mysterious intergalactic bodies, or as some call them...dirty snowballs. We turn your students into Astronomers who visit the Oort Cloud to better understand how a comet is created! What better way to understand comet behavior than a true hands-on experience! more...
 
Digging Into Science
Geology courses in a bucket! These unique experiences provide students the opportunity to dig into a portion of authentic gem-bearing gravel in search for minerals like rubies, sapphires, turquoise and more! The "Geology In A Bucket" program also introduces an in-depth study into rock formation and testing techniques. Students will act as if they are actually on a geology fieldtrip. more...
 
Find A Fossil
Fun filled, hands-on paleontology experiences! Students will act as if they are actually on a paleontology excavation. Students transform into Paleontologists in this one-of-a-kind field trip. No where else is such an experience possible (except in actual phosphate mines or fossil beds!). more...
 
Mini Meterologist
An exciting experience with meteorology! An opportunity for young "meteorologists" to use genuine weather equipment to collect & analyze data, then forecast the weather! Meteorologists will be "blown away" by the practices to predict weather. They can then apply the knowledge they've learned to better understand Florida's weather patterns as well as unwanted hurricanes. more...
 

Life Science
 
Amazing Oceans
A touch of the ocean & beach at your own school! A unique opportunity for students to see, feel and smell the ocean & beach in their own classroom! "Beach Keepers" & "Marine Biologists" will see and feel for themselves what a complex habitat the ocean and dynamic zone the beach really are and needs to remain! Our theme of marine preservation and wise management will encourage all to keep a keen eye on the future of this salty scene! more...
 
Barnacle Billie
Barnacle Billie/Billy is an old salt who has many a story to tell about the seas of our planet. Be ready for an hour-long interactive experience which students are bound to “wave” about to their friends and family. more...
 
Desert Reach

In all the world there is only one Sonoran Desert...through education and awareness we hope to insure its existence for future generations! Students become "Desert Explorers" who examine, compare, analyze, observe, construct and create. Explorers will study all aspects of the desert including flora, fauna and ancient civilizations. They will find out for themselves that the desert isn't the dry and desolate place people often think of. This is a unique opportunity to touch the desert without hours of travel! more...

 
Everglades Reach
A unique opportunity for students to see, feel and smell the Everglades in their own classroom! We turn your students into wildlife biologists who search for critters among the 'glades grasses. They'll meet the reptile cousins, touch a real 'gator skull, smell the peat, see what an owl ate for dinner and much more! Stories and legends about the Pahayokee will thrill and fascinate all who hear! Students will relate to the Everglades as more than a fishing place or where danger lies. Wildlife Biologists will have first-hand experience with the 'glades that will open their eyes to the real treasures that we depend on to survive in Florida. They will be our future "Glades Guardians". more...
 
Forest Reach
A unique opportunity for students to see, feel and smell the forest in their own classroom! We turn your students into "Forest Foragers" who search for critters among the forest's litter, classify flora & fauna from the forest floor, make herbal teas using medicinal plants and research the importance and behavior of worms. more...
 
Remarkable Reptile
Herpetologists have an opportunity to explore the class of Reptilia and those specific to what can be found here in Florida. They discuss the history and characteristics that make reptiles unique from the other classes of animals. more...
 
Sawgrass Sam
Our Everglades resident is back and ready to take your class on an adventure and share stories about this fragile ecosystem and the critters that live in it. Students will relate to the Everglades as more than a fishing place or where danger lies. Wildlife Biologists will have first-hand experience with the ‘glades that will open their eyes to the real treasures that we depend on to survive in Florida. They will be our future “Glades Guardians”. more...
 

Physical Science
 
Rockin Rockets
In Rockin' Rockets students will learn how engineers in the first century BC were able to create a propulsive force generated by steam; how the Chinese created pop, or chemical rockets! Then, rocket engineers will design, build and launch these early engine rockets. more...
 

Field Expeditions
 
Come share a day at the beach with us and discover that there is much more to our coastline than just a place to catch some rays! Our site location is a unique spot along the coastline of Broward County as it is a truly living beach in John U. Lloyd State Park. The golden sands are not just a place for tourists, but a place for discovery and appreciation of the environment around us. Students are immersed into a hands-on investigation of exploring the dynamic beach/ocean ecosystem. No two days are ever the same as the wind, waves, and tides constantly shape and change the shoreline and what can be discovered along it in our living classroom. Our goal is to have each child realize the difference they can make in the environment by the choices they consider and the impacts each can have on our coastline beaches of Florida. more...
