Amazing Animal Adaptations

Amazing Animal Adaptations: Bugs, Grades 2-5

In this fun, interactive adventure, your students will participate in a facilitated program highlighting adaptations of animals in six different habitats using Museum collections and visit the Museum’s special exhibition, Bugs.  Your students will use a keepsake trading card game to explore how animals, many of which are featured in the temporary exhibition, use specialized senses and parts of their body to adapt to their environment.  In Bugs, your students will enter the world of insects, marvel at their adaptive genius, and explore through immersive games and activities that get students’ brains and bodies moving like a bug, including creating their own bug!

A Spanish speaking bilingual educator may be available upon request. The Museum can also provide Spanish program materials for students and chaperones. 

1 chaperone per 10 students is required. Price: $235 per program of up to 32 students and 4 chaperones.  Temporary exhibit entrance included.
