School Program for Grades K-2
Discover how animals adapt to their environment by looking closely and making observations of animal specimens from the museum’s collections. Students use observations and background knowledge to make inferences about how those adaptations help the animal to survive in its environment. In-person programs take place at the museum in Washington, D.C.
Online school programs are on hold for fall 2023. Please check back periodically for updates regarding the return of the programs in 2024.
Registration is now open for programs through June 2024.
