 Don't miss the opportunity to attend a classroom program during this year's Tennessee Aquarium Homeschool Day!  This is your student's chance to have a hands-on learning experience with our Tennessee Aquarium Education Team.  See below for age groups and class descriptions.

 

Plant Life Cycles

Age Range:  K - 3rd

Learn about the life cycle of a plant.  How do plants reproduce?  What is pollination?  What part do flowers play in the plant life cycle?

 

Skull Detectives

Age Rage:  1st - 3rd

 Find clues to tell you about how different animals survive by examining features on their skulls.  We'll learn about animal adaptations and have hands-on exploration of models of animal skulls.

 

Owl Pellet Dissection

Age Range:  4th - 8th

 Using simple tools, students will explore the contents of the (sterilized) regurgitated pellets of indigestible material (bones and fur primarliy) that owls leave behind.  This is how real-life wildlife scientists conduct diet studies on owls in the wild.  Let's science together!

 

Plankton Power

Age Range:  9th - 12th

Students learn about the drifters of the ocean and design their own plankton in a race to see who can sink the slowest.
