Modules:

Regal Mutts

We’ll dig deep into the world of shelter pets, with a focus on all of the different kinds of pups we help each day at AHS. Participants will discover how scientists are able to use DNA to find out what different traits might come together to make one paw-some dog. We’ll also explore what makes a dog a “pit bull,” and why our bully buddies often get a bad rap. Kiddos will be provided with all the materials they need to make their own “regal mutt”- a unique pup straight from their imagination! Lastly, we know that the children who typically attend our programs are incredibly innovative and always looking for ways to help animals in their community. We’ll introduce them to a great way to help the regal mutts in our shelter right from their own homes!
Reptiles

Get ready to slither, slink, and scurry into this rockin’ reptile lesson! We’ll cover what distinct traits make a reptile, how they move, and where some of our favorite reptile can be found. Participants will craft their own reptiles out of clay as they work to make fun items like badges and pots that they can take pride in. We’ll also explore the culture and amazing artwork of the people who live in the same places as one of our reptiles, like Berry, the blue tongued skink from Australia.
Jr. Vet

We’ll examine x-rays and explore the science of veterinary medicine! This four-activity module will introduce your participants to the ins-and-outs of what it takes to be a vet. We’ll repair a mock broken bone, discover how cats can see so well in the dark, practice our suturing technique, and even use the bright dessert sun to help us develop our own pet x-ray!
Amphibians

Let’s hop on over and learn all about this incredible group of indicator species! Not only will we practice our field skills by identifying different amphibians by their distinctive calls, but we’ll also preform experiments to examine their permeable skin to better understand how they live and how we impact their world. We’ll finish up with an amazing stained glass activity focused on amphibian camouflage and brighter warning colors.
