Animal Hall Adventures

Grades 3-5 / 4-5pm

Whether we are preparing turtle salads or learning what makes a great chinchilla home, each week of this program will feature a new adventure in Earthplace’s Animal Hall. Throughout the six-week session, each child will research one of the resident animals, learn about their needs, and design a model habitat. The session will end with a presentation about their animal and the design they have created. Children will also participate in various Animal Hall-based activities each week, including preparing animal diets, looking after animal enclosures, and creating opportunities for animal enrichment.
