Lesson Descriptions

Grades K-2

Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar: Trace the development of a butterfly from an egg to an adult. We will read and act out parts from Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”.

Busy World of Bees: 90% of commercially grown plants in the United States require pollination by bees.  In this program we will explore the world of bees including: following their lifecycle, exploring the different types of bees, understanding the many jobs workers have in the hive and much more.

Are You My Mother? Explore a wide variety of seeds. Help sort seeds by color, size, and shape. Match a seed to the plant it produces.

Yummy Plant Parts: Did you know that a carrot is a root and a potato is a tuber? Learn what part of a plant your favorite vegetables come from. 

Grades 3-4

Butterfly Habits: What makes a butterfly an insect? How do butterflies protect themselves? Learn about the interesting life cycle of butterflies and the ways evolution has helped them protect themselves from becoming someone else’s lunch.

Have Seed, Will Travel: Check out how and why seeds travel from their parents. Some plants hitchhike, while some blow in the wind. Can you guess which seeds float? For our on-site audience, plant a seed in an “eco-pot”, and then take it home.

The Buzz about Bees: 90% of commercially grown plants in the United States require pollination by bees.  In this program we will explore the world of bees including: following their lifecycle, exploring the different types of bees, understanding the many jobs workers have in the hive and much more.
