Rainforest Van

Developed specifically for 2nd grade, this FREE 55 minute (per class) outreach program creates an experience as students meet ambassador animals from various tropical rainforest habitats around the world. Students will explore the roles each animal plays in their habitat by investigating the structure and function of the animal’s body and features.  This program is also available virtually.
