“We loved the hands on nature of both science and art experiences, that there weren’t any other schools there which makes for a less crazy/less worrisome day and that we can stay as one class to rotate through the stations. We loved that everything is organized and that there were knowledgeable teachers at each station.” – Fayette County teacher

VIRTUAL OUTREACHES

  • 45-50 min
  • $100 per session
  • Multi-sessions available

Virtual learning is challenging, but the Living Arts & Science Center is here to help support you and your students! Your class will have the chance to meet our cast of animal ambassadors virtually and learn all about their native habitats.

Animals and Habitats: (K-5th) From the deserts in Australia to the rain forests in Madagascar, explore diversity among animal species from around the world and learn about the features that make a habitat suitable for living things! Students will virtually interact with live animals while comparing their physical and behavioral characteristics. Further, students will learn about how structures and functions give clues to the habitats that living organisms are adapted to live in. This outreach supports Next Generation Science Standards.

 

VIRTUAL RESOURCES

The Living Think: LASC has unveiled a new YouTube channel called The Living Think. There you will find  free video resources and lesson plans that align with state standards. Bring these fun characters into your class virtually with any outreach listed above.
