Tropical Biodiversity – SOLD OUT

  • Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Join us on the third Wednesday of the month (September – February) for Curiosity Classes designed especially for homeschool and track-out students.  During these 1½-hour classes, we’ll delve deeper into topics and incorporate additional learning experiences.

Discover live animals and plants from a variety of tropical habitats during this program highlighting biodiversity within tropical ecosystems, North Carolina’s connections with the New World tropics, and plant and animal strategies for survival.  The program includes a tour of the Living Conservatory, our Central American tropical dry forest exhibit, where students can find live butterflies, turtles, a tarantula, snake, and even a two-toed sloth.

Curriculum Correlation(s): 3rd grade ELA, 4.L.1, 5.L.2
