Our outreach programs visit 2nd, 4th, and 6th grade classrooms to support Utah science curriculum and inspire the future stewards of our Living Planet. Click below to learn more about these programs
Our 2nd grade program reinforces science objectives to introduce concepts about tropical rainforests and mapping skills. Students will “travel” across continents identifying locations of tropical rainforests, observing live animals, and connecting their ideas with evidence to make conclusions about how the animals survive in this vital ecosystem
UTAH WATERS VAN
The Utah Waters Van is offered to 4th grade students throughout Utah. The content is specifically designed to correlate with the Utah State Office of Education’s Science Core Curriculum. Presenters guide students through a variety of topics including; wetland ecosystems, the water cycle, and water conservation
The Ecosystem Van is designed for 6th graders. This program demonstrates how the stability of populations is affected by changes to an ecosystem using the new Utah State SEEd Standards. Interactive games, activities, and models are paired with animals to connect students with the worlds ecosystems. This program also includes an interactive, online, student game that teachers can utilize as a post-visit activity to apply the concepts learned.
