Subject varies according to grade level

Real science specimens

Aligned with Next Generation Science Standards

Invite Explorit into your classroom to provide guided hands-on experiences for your students. After a brief introductory discussion with an Explorit educator, students will rotate through four activity stations, each with interactive activities and explorations to stimulate curiosity, and encourage investigation and problem solving. 

All programs are aligned with state and national standards.


Amazing Animals

(K-3rd Grade)

Learn how animals are classified into groups. Investigate some adaptations animals use to survive and thrive with real specimens. Study life cycles to discover how young animals change as they grow.  Students will get to meet one live reptile and one type of insect.
