is NOT JUST BUGS!
" PORTABLE ZOOSTM"
on a WIDE variety of NATURAL subjects.
PORTABLE NATURAL HISTORY.
Featuring live, safe, TOUCHABLE insects as well as HUNDREDS of preserved specimens, the BUG showcase is PERFECT for schools, daycare centers, Birthday parties, corporate events, play dates, libraries, church events, parks and recreation centers, retirement centers, scouts, home schools, etc.
And with our
13 other SCIENCE-BASED EDUCATIONAL programs, we have something for EVERYONE!
All shows are aligned with
Oregon State Educational Standards
as well as
National Science Education Standards.
"NATURAL HISTORY OF THE OREGON TRAIL” cover the basics of the Applegate and Oregon Trails combined with the animals and geology that the settlers encountered. We discuss the game animals…bison, elk, deer, quail… as well as the predators….wolves and coyotes. And the best part is the PETTING….hides and horns from ALL of the mammals and birds that we discuss. We also play the OREGON TRAIL FOOD SUPPLY GAME to see what the audience thinks would be the animals with the biggest benefits. Includes information about the landmark rocks and rivers as well as the importance of the bison to the Native Americans as well as the pioneers.
Each student receives a detailed OREGON TRAIL Historical map and a coloring page at the end of the program.
The rumors are true…..we do EAT bugs as well!
Along with the regular BUG program, we also offer to let audiences EAT real insects....freeze dried crickets and mealworms
(they taste like chicken with a potato-chip coating.
Picture POPCORN with LEGS.)
As weird as this sounds, since we starting offering the chance to eat insects, EVERYONE has said “YES.”
It’s something you DON’T want to miss……just ask!
