Pre-K Outreach Programs

Itsy Bitsy Bugs 

Youngsters meet live bugs and learn about bugs they may find outside their home or school through dramatic play and music. 


As a whole group, students reveal how butterflies and moths differ by dressing up a student or teacher and studying preserved butterflies and moths, then experience the butterfly life cycle in an active metamorphosis game.  

Creepy Crawly Story Time

By reading beloved stories and encountering live animals, children and families come to appreciate various invertebrates as they take on a whole new dimension as literary characters.

Bug Safari
