Squares, triangles, and trapezoids take center stage as students explore the angles of geometry. With mirrors and pattern blocks, students observe, predict and experiment with the principles of symmetry. Explore spatial thinking by experimenting with shapes and spaces in ThinkSpace!


Tooth Sleuth

Best suited for grades K - 3

Students become tooth detectives as they examine the skulls of a tiger, an alligator, a horse and a wombat. Using careful observation and keen sleuthing skills, students categorize teeth according to size, shape and function to identify herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.


Worm World

Worms are natural recyclers. While handling live earthworms, students use observation and inquiry to investigate questions such as: Where do worms live? How do they move? What happens when an earthworm eats a rotten leaf? Students gain an understanding of basic worm anatomy and the critical role worms play in maintaining a balanced environment.
