Live Video School Program for Grades K-2
During this staff-led program students will practice science skills by making observations of animal specimens from our virtual collections to discover how different adaptations help animals survive in their natural environment. Students will explore the different kinds of structural adaptations of animals who live on land, water, and in the air.
