When you reserve a Classroom Adventure an Explorit educator brings a 60-minute hands-on science investigation into your classroom. 

 

With six topics, an array of specimens, activities and information, Classroom Adventure programs will supplement and enrich your science curriculum. Each Classroom Adventure is an hour in length and includes an interactive introduction by Explorit's science educator, plus time for free exploration and investigation.  Your students will make and share observations, construct a framework for understanding science, and develop problem solving skills. The scope and focus of each subject varies according to grade level. All programs are aligned with state and national standards. Teacher supplements with specific standards alignment are available for each topic.
