Animal – Insects

Crawl, jump, or fly into the school year with us as we begin our Wonderfeet Homeschool Days with an emphasis on zoology. September 10th finds us investigating animals in class Insecta. Insects! Observe a variety of insects, dissect grasshoppers, conduct experiments to better understand insect adaptations, animate your own insect creation, and more as we study as Entomologists. Let the metamorphosis of our minds begin!


Animals – Birds

Come fly with us Monday, October 8th, 2018. Create a bird, explore bird adaptations through stations focused on feathers and flight, eggs, bird beaks, vision, and bone structure. Meet raptors from VINS Monday afternoon and more as we focus on all things birds.


Animals – Mammals

Grab your ticket to the WonderZoo! Come and explore what it means to be a mammal during November’s Homeschool Day at Wonderfeet. Be a part of zoo creation as you develop an exhibit for a mammal of your choice and help others learn about your mammal’s unique adaptations. Explore what it means to be an endotherm and understand what other traits help a mammal thermoregulate (Wait. What does that mean?). Learn how hormones send messages within creatures and more on November 12th from 9 AM-2 PM at Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum. Don’t monkey around. Register today.
