Going the distance
Animal Encounters: Creepy Critters (10/29/15)
Unfortunately for our guests, their creepy appearance strikes fear in most people, even though they know little about them, and in some cases have never encountered them. Our visitors are quite an eclectic bunch, from those with no limbs, to others with four, six, or even eight! Join us as we take an up-close look at these critters and discuss how they fit into the food chain, as well as their habitats, adaptations, and the structures that bring fear to many. Each presentation is 45 minutes.
Animal Encounters: Bats-A-Billion (10/30/15)
This interactive presentation provides students the opportunity to investigate the relationship between the anatomy and the ecology, including the dietary habits, of different species of bats. This is an experience you will not want to miss. LIVE bats take part in the program! We will look at their unique body structures and their functions that allow bats to fly, identify other special adaptations, as well as discuss their basic needs and diverse habitats. We will also discuss ways you can help these beneficial creatures and conserve their habitats. Each presentation is 45 minutes.

Awesome App of the Month
Techie Teacher Award
This month's Techie Teacher Award goes to Melissa Deppe at Walnut Springs Elementary for using QR Codes to help her students explore Author's Purpose. I'm sure she'd be willing to explain more if you're interested! Thanks, Melissa, for Gettin' Techy With It!
