Wylde Animals!

This week we’ll explore all things animals! From the different types, to how they find what they need to survive and what these wild critters do for fun. Come learn how similar and how different animals and people can be and even meet a few live animal ambassadors up close and personal! Birds and bees, reptiles and amphibians, anything is game this week!

Wylde Earth!

Do you love rocks and fossils? This week will rock your world as we learn all about this planet we call home and some of the amazing inorganic things we find here. We’ll discover how rocks are made, learn how the movements within our earth create earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes. We’ll even dig deep into the world of fossils, learning how they’re made and do a little excavating of our own! Don’t miss out on this week of fun!

June 25 – 29:

Wylde Anomalies!

Our earth is home to some very incredible living things. Join us this week as we explore all of the WYLDE plants and animals that break all the rules! Plants that “eat,” mammals born from eggs and animals of all kinds who see further, fly faster, jump higher and blow our minds with their abilities! See how you measure up in this exciting week all about those record setting and rule breaking organisms!
