Snakes, scales, and lizard tails are just a few of the things we are learning about in the Reptiles Alive After School Enrichment Program.
Students love attending our hands-on live animal after school program. During each class, a professional Reptiles Alive wildlife educator introduces students to different live animals including slimy amphibians, spiky iguanas, grinning alligators, creepy crawlies, laughing lizards and more. Interesting artifacts such as skeletons, antlers, eggs, and skins are also included in many of the programs. Story-telling, arts & craft activities, and fun experiments combined with live exotic animals, make this a very popular program.
Activities during our classes include safely touching live snakes, turtles, and lizards and handling skulls, bones, skins and other natural artifacts. We might: search for animals in a population survey; slip in slime to discover the properties of frog mucus; help train a couple of animals; measure the world’s biggest snake; find out what it’s like to be a zoo keeper; start a nature journal; and more!
Our after school classes are great for grades k-3 or 3-6. We have a maximum of 19 students allowed so that each student gets an up close and personal experience. Schools and PTA’s are booking for the current school year now. If you are interested in bringing this wildly exciting class to your school this year, please give us a call at 703 560-0257 or send us an email at [email protected]
