They will recognize, and begin to analyze, the differences between living and non-living things. They will observe and discuss parts of living organisms and how those parts help an organism survive. To encourage extension and family engagement, all participating students earn a FREE FAMILY PASS, valid for one return visit.

Students Will

  • recognize the differences between living organisms and non-living objects.
