Digging for worms, feeling millipede tickles and listening to the hissing of a cockroach keep your little environmentalists giggling as they learn. These animals play a vital role in the food chain as decomposers, or nature’s recycling team! Students understand that soil is made from living and nonliving organic material as they compare sand, clay and garden soils. Healthy soil, along with sun and water, facilitate the life cycle of a plant. Students develop a new understanding and deep appreciation for all bugs, soils and plants. They are so excited to take home the seeds they planted during this hands-on presentation!
Each show is ideally designed for 25-35 children. The presenter will need a table on which they may set their digestive props with the children either sitting in chairs, in a large semi-circle, or the children may sit at their desks. Presentations can be done in the classroom, media center, or cafeteria and the presenter must set up and stay in one room while the children rotate between classes/groups.
