Programs for Home Schooled Children

The Institute is pleased to offer free science lessons for children, ages 6+, who are home schooled or in groups of fewer than 10 children. Reservations are required - instructions below. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

All programs consist of an interactive lesson in the 19th century lecture hall, real natural history specimens to touch, and a scavenger hunt in the museum gallery.

Animal Adaptations

Friday, January 11, 2013

10:00 - 11:30 AM

All animals need the same basic things for survival - food, water, and shelter - but there is immense diversity in the ways that different animals meet these needs. Examine and touch real animal specimens that illustrate a wide variety of strategies animals use to survive in many different kinds of environments. Observe even more animal adaptations and do a scavenger hunt while exploring the Wagner Institute's collection of preserved animals.

This program is FREE but reservations are required.

Call 215-763-6529 x17 or Email for reservations.

Museum admission and programs are FREE, but donations are appreciated. A donation of $8 per adult and $5 per child is suggested, but any contribution will make a difference.
