In-School Field Trip Program Description

Become a part of the L.D.T., The Lifecycle Discovery Team!

Team members will explore some of the different animals in our world and see first hand the process of growth and change that they go through. The L.D.T. will learn how to classify animals and see how their needs are met. After investigating the effects of humans on our world, the Lifecycle Discovery Team will be ready to protect our future animals from environmental threats.

Video Conference Program Description

3, 2, 1, Action! Join Bitsy Butterfly, an Animal Reporter, as she interviews different wildlife in the Animal Kingdom. Through this virtual adventure, you will become an animal expert as you learn about the process of growth and change that animals go through and study the effects of humans on our world. Bitsy Butterfly will teach you how to classify animals into different categories and describe how their needs are met in their respective habitats. This unique experience will end off with you creating and decorating your very own 3D butterfly metamorphosis craft!

Each station was engaging and was easily understood by all of my students. We have a wide range of grade levels and they were all engaged.

This in-school field trip really summarized the Animal LifeCycles unit for my students. They found the hands-on activities engaging and really enjoyed the examples provided.

Grade 3 TeacherSt. Matthew School

The Presenter was absolutely amazing. We also thoroughly love the student booklet, and so do the students!!!

Describe the appearance and life cycles of some common animals.

  • Predict the next stages in growth and development of at least one animal from each of the following groups:  mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects; and identify similarities and differences in their developmental sequences.
  • Identify the food needs of at least one animal from each of the following groups:  mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects.
  • Demonstrate awareness that animals require different habitats in order to meet their basic needs of food, water, shelter and space.
  • Identify examples of environmental conditions that may threaten animal survival.
  • Recognize that habitat preservation can help maintain animal populations and identify ways that students’ actions can assist habitat preservation.
