Early Learning Incursions
are a great starting point to introduce native animals in the classroom. Although your kids wont understand what reverse sexual dimorphism is, with our friendly and patient presenters we will break each animal down and teach the kids about animal shapes, diet and feel along with other basic principles. We put your reptile or wildlife encounter in words the kids can understand so they take the most out of their animal visit.
are were the students come to life, answering questions and telling stories of their own animal encounters. This session not only teaches them about wildlife but instills confidence in individuals to speak in front of others and recall stories about their experiences, weather it be a pet at home or an animal on a holiday .It also really gets them to step out of their comfort zone and reach new achievements not only as an individual but also as a group. Whether its three year old or four year old kindergarten, they will love what our wildlife shows have to offer.
Wild Birthday Parties
Our kids birthday parties are also a great service, allowing the kids to interact with our wildlife and learn about each animal as the show goes on. Weather you have a girl or a boy, they are going to love an animal Birthday party from The Rookeepers because we have a large variety of reptiles, mammals and birds which come to every wildlife show. We even have wild birthday invitations to download and print.
