Students will focus on rainforest and desert ecology including plant and animal adaptations. Discussions will be appropriate for the grade level. To help you prepare for the program, a Teacher Information Packet and student worksheets will be sent upon request.
Each discussion / hands-on session will last 30-45 minutes. Afterward, students will complete worksheets during their exploration of our conservatory. Allow an hour and one-half to two hours for this program.
Programs meet state of Wisconsin DPI standards and Milwaukee Public School standards for science content. One adult chaperone is required for every 8 students. Programs for School Groups, K-5 - College, youth groups, and summer school groups require a minimum of 20 students.
