Reptiles Are Cool

Science Assembly Program | Grades: K-8

Take an eye-opening look at the world of reptiles through this informative program that features snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises, and alligators. Students will learn fascinating facts as they get a close-up look at reptiles creeping, leaping, crawling, and climbing.

Students can even touch some reptiles such as the Burmese python, boa constrictor, turtles, terrapins, and tortoises. But the Solomon Island Skink and other sharp toothed reptiles are better left untouched. We supervise all hands-on activities to ensure the safety of students at all times. Here are some of the details that students will learn about:

Lizards, with their sleek bodies and long tails, vary in size from the 3-inch worm lizard to the 12-foot Komodo Monitor Lizard. A lizard's tongue not only helps catch prey, but sometimes serves as a nose to smell.

Turtles range in size from a few inches to as tall as a full-grown man. Some weigh over 1,000 pounds. Instead of teeth, these reptiles have jaws with razor-sharp edges.

Fresh water turtles, with their webbed feet, spend most of their lives in water. Sea turtles have broad flippers to help them navigate the sea. Tortoises, which have toes, live mostly on land.

Snakes are known to slither, crawl, swim or climb. Snakes can be as small as a 10-inch vine snake or as long as a 30-foot Anaconda snake.

The program is structured and conducted with two objectives in mind. First, to entertain and hold the interests of students. Second, to provide the students with a basic informational introduction to reptiles.

Students are encouraged to ask questions during the program and also, but not required to, touch the live animals and to discover for themselves why, Reptiles are Cool.

Lions and Tigers and Science Assemblies - Oh My!
Nature is a very cool thing! This was forwarded to me this morning and I thought I would share it. Out in California in a Zoo a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs.
Sadly, due to difficulties in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and, being tiny, they died shortly after birth. But after recovering from the delivery, the mother cat suddenly began to decline in health. Physically she was fine, but the veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression...

Live Animal School Assemblies - Like a Visit From The Zoo!
Kids love animals! No escaping that one. A visit to the zoo is a beloved experience for all kids. And it's a great part of their education, too.

I was at a zoo recently and my kids and I got to experience an added bonus. We were passing the exhibit where the seals  are housed. A zoo employee was there feeding them, which is always a great thing to watch. There happened to be quite a few kids this time in the audience. A second employee gathered the kids and started talking to them about the seals and their habits. The kids were entranced. A very cool teaching moment!...

Dog And Pony Shows - Vaudeville and Science Assembly Programs
Most of you are probably too young to remember but there was a time before television, and even before movies. Yes, really! Back in those days adults routinely attended the theatre not only to view plays, operas, ballets and other high art, but also to view “low brow” entertainment in what were called vaudeville houses. An evening of vaudeville involved a running slate of different “acts” ...
