What's In the Dirt
"Pepperoni and worms please!" Tracing the origins of pizza as an example, this hands-on presentation illustrates the importance of "dirt" to kids, showing that we'd all starve without healthy soil. We use hand puppets, pizza ingredients and tubs of compost with live earthworms, beetles, and snails to prove our points. We finish up with live, dirt-loving box turtles - all very hands-on!
My Animal Neighbors
Do your neighbors have feathers, scales ... or maybe even six legs? Yes! There are many amazing animals that have adapted to live alongside us.here in our city, around our houses, apartments and neighborhoods. By meeting live animals including tree frogs, snakes, spiders and millipedes, children will be introduced to some very cool city animals that are an important part of our community. We'll learn about the many ways they help us, and we'll finish by learning some simple things we can do to help them!
Life in a Pond
"What good is a mosquito?" This program shows how every member in both human and pond communities is necessary to the survival of the community as a whole. To understand how we are all connected, children will meet pond creature hand puppets and live, native animals (minnows, tadpoles, crawfish, water turtles, etc.) from Houston Audubon's Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary ponds.
