Animals: Focuses on different types of reptiles each week. If we are coming to your school, we bring about 3-5 animals per week.
- Week 1: Turtles
- Week 2: Tortoises
- Week 3: Lizards
- Week 4: Snakes
- Week 5: Crocodilians
- Week 6: Class favorites (Optional - Reptile presentations)
Interactions are an essential part of our presentations and will be a part of each one.
Reptile Club is a 6 week long collaboration between a group of students and the PHS staff.
- AT PHS: Students will work with the various different reptiles each week. They will have interaction time while they take care of the reptiles' need such as refilling water, feeding, cleaning enclosures and event enrichment. They will get to see hundred of different species and get to work with reptile from around the world. This is a unique opportunity to start students on the path of zookeeping or biology in general.
- AT YOUR SCHOOL: Each week, PHS staff members bring a set of animals to a classroom of 10 - 30 students for one hour. One week may focus on aquatic turtles, another week on non-venomous snakes, a week of crocodiles, and so on. It is a super fun & interactive, but safe way for students to learn about 30+ species over the course of their Reptile Club experience. Optional: Reptile Club can conclude with an open-house style presentation day. Each student chooses a reptile that fascinated them at some point during Reptile Club. They then research, prepare a visual aid, and present their findings on the last day of Reptile Club. Past Reptile Clubs have invited other students/grades, parents, and school administration members to learn about what they now know.
Topics that are covered each week include encouraging co-existence, myths, reality, adaptations, life history, ecological roles, conservation status, and much more!
Reptile Club is ideal for schools or classrooms that do not want a one-time presentation and want to expose their students to as many animals as possible in their own school setting.
