Classroom Visits

Barnyard in the Classroom (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

Bring the barn to you! This workshop lets you meet and interact with an array of our farm animals. Receive a brief overview of farm animals, their history, the products they provide, and their importance to society.

Bees, Wasps and other Pollinators (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

Discover the world of pollination and how these animals contribute to our world. This workshop introduces students to bees and other pollinating animals through an up-close view into their lives. Learn about the different roles, their busy lives, and what they give to society.

BUGS! (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

Dive into the world of arthropods! You’ll meet some different species of bugs when you let us bring some of our creepy crawlers to you. Learn all about the different classifications, how bugs survive, and what the world looks like from their eyes.

Reptile Explorers (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

Ever wanted to hold a bearded dragon or learn how big a tortoise can be? Let us bring our reptile friends to you and explore their lives. Learn all about what it takes to be a reptile, what they eat, and the ways they protect themselves in the wild.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Fairies & Fools! (6th – 12th Grade)

Explore how not to put on a play as your students take on the roles of Shakespeare’s classic clowns. This includes a lively introduction to Bottom, the Mechanicals and their misguided theatrics, sabotaged by Puck and his mischievous magic. The workshop culminates in an unintentionally hysterical performance of Pyramus & Thisbe.

Hamlet/Stage Combat Workshop (9th – 12th Grade)

Pre-selected students will be guided, as a director leads the actors, through the physical blocking of the final scene of Hamlet, including stage combat. This is a big, loud, ranging, high-energy workshop that requires a large bare stage or open area, preferably indoors.

Romeo & Juliet (6th – 12th Grade)

The famous balcony scene will be unlocked and translated line by line in this workshop. Variations of this workshop will explore the five scenes that Romeo and Juliet appear in together, including the dance, balcony, marriage, morning, and tomb scenes.
