Classroom Visits

Explore the Lives of Animals

Children are curious by nature, especially when they watch animals in action. What about organizing a classroom visit to help them understand how reptiles, insects, and small animals live?

Classroom Visit Rates

Classroom visits are $250.  If booking more than one visit, additional booked visits are $200 each.

New! Barnyard Zoom Classroom Visits!

Zoom and in-person classroom visits allows children to meet and interact with an array of our farm animals. Receive a brief overview of the animals, their history, and virtually go behind the scenes with our Animal Keepers. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions while our animal keepers showcase each of the barnyard animals.

Classroom Visits

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

Let us bring the barnyard to you! This amazing workshop lets students interact with a variety of our farm animals. Students will receive brief overviews of farm animals, their natural history, and learn a variety of proper animal terms. The best way to learn about animals is from the animals themselves! Only available within a 25 mile radius of Fairytale Town.

Pollinators and Decomposers (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

Discover the world of Pollinators and Decomposers with real buzzing bees! Students will learn that bees are great pollinators and are responsible for one in every three bites we take of food. Students will also be able to meet amazing bugs like the Giant Hissing Cockroach and African Giant Millipede, who are excellent decomposers.

BUGS! (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

It’s a small world after all! Arthropods make up the largest phylum in the animal kingdom, and that’s a lot! 84% of all known species of animals make up the Arthropoda Phylum! Students will get to meet living specimens and learn about these amazing bugs.

Reptile Explorers (Pre-K – 5th Grade)

Ever heard of an ectotherm? No, it’s not something from a sci-fi movie. Ectotherms are cold-blooded animals, like reptiles! For this visit, we will bring our many reptile friends to the classroom so we can explore their scaly lives together. Students will learn about what defines a reptile, what they eat, and how they protect themselves in the wild.

Theatre Classroom Visits

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.

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.
