Explorer Lab - In School Program - Biodiversity (Grades 2-3)Regular price
This program introduces the scientific concepts of phyla, food webs, and biodiversity through group work, creative thinking, and class sharing. We look closely at echinoderms and what separates them from other marine invertebrate groups.
In 3 groups (you may wish to decide on groups before hand), students will build a complex food web around a live animal, with strings indicating predators and prey. Once each group is finished, the class will rotate through the stations, observing the constructed food web and having a chance to touch the various sea creatures.
Duration: 60 minutes
