Ecoventure Classes

EcoVenture Classes are interactive and inquiry-based classroom experiences for students of all ages. They are designed to align with the Utah State Core Curriculum guidelines by grade level, as well as the National Science Education Standards and North American Association of Environmental Education Guidelines.

Pre-K/Kindergarten

Animals Shapes & Colors
Geckos, snakes, and tree frogs, oh my! Students will get an up close look at live animals and investigate how their shapes, colors and other characteristics help them survive. *Available to 4-5 year olds entering Kindergarten next year.

1st Grade

Fun with Maps
Take a journey on our giant world map and discover oceans, rainforests and other amazing habitats! Students will use their mapping skills to determine the best homes for plants and animals. Includes a live animal encounter!

2nd Grade

Awesome Ocean Creatures
The oceans are filled with many amazing habitats, and incredible creatures that live within them. By looking at these creatures we can tell a lot about them and how they survive in their environment. This program includes a live animal encounter and a habitat match up game that discusses why certain habitats are suitable based on their external features. Aligns with 2nd Grade Utah Core Standard 4.

3rd Grade

Exploring Tides
How many living and nonliving things can you find in a tide pool? Students will participate in a simulation of animal interactions in tide pools after learning how the Earth, Moon and Sun cause the tides.

4th Grade

Fossils of Utah
Fossils are fun! We will take your students on an expedition to Ancient Utah where they will uncover fossil types and find out how and when they are formed. Students will have a chance to handle real fossils in small groups and play the fish fossil formation game. Aligns with 4th Grade Utah Core Standard 4.

Aquatic Bird Adaptions
Utah is an important habitat for many kinds of birds, including birds adapted to live in aquatic environments. In order to live in these water based habitats many birds have unique behaviors and features to help them survive. This program features a bird beak activity to help your students better understand how adaptations are linked with survival. Aligns with 4th Grade Utah Core Standards 5:2:b & 5:4:a.

5th Grade

Aligns with 5th Grade Utah Core Standard 5:2.

6th Grade

Ocean Circulation and climate Lab
Discover the amazing ways the oceans influence our planet! Through a set of experiments, students will learn about different properties of water and how they contribute to ocean currents and weather. Discussion takes places on the ocean’s physical and chemical properties and their importance to human life. Aligns with 6th Grade SEEd Strand 6.3.

7th Grade

Aquarium Careers
Focus on different career opportunities in zoos and aquariums and meet some professionals at LLPA! Students will learn what it takes to run an aquarium and the steps required to advance in aquarium career fields. An optional hands-on lab component consists of performing water quality tests for actual aquarium exhibits. Tests include pH, nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia levels.

Threatened and Endangered Species
Discuss how human influences are impacting threatened and endangered species. Using critical thinking, students are asked to infer likely causes of population decline in various species.

Bird Adaptations Lab
Explore traits of different birds and determine how they are specific to the environment they live in. Students participate in two activities, one that demonstrates the relationship between beak shape and food choice and one that shows the mechanisms of inheritance and selection. (May include a live bird encounter depending on availability)
