Living Planet Aquarium Visit

 The Living Planet Aquarium from Draper, Utah sent two outreach educators to our area to talk about the water cycle and show some animals. This was a great opportunity for the kids to learn some science and learn about the bigger world around them.

 The kids started off on the floor.

 But soon they got to see the water cycle model up close. It was really cool.

 The kids made movements as they reenacted the parts of the water cycle.

 Soon it was time for the rain cycle dance.



 Jackie and Holly brought some animals with them to show, including this garter snake, which the students could touch.


 Then it was time for a neat experiment--pump up a bottle with a little bit of rubbing alcohol in it to make a cloud. They got to do it over and over again and really enjoyed it.

 A red-spotted toad.

A gopher snake.

The kids were really well-behaved and enjoyed the special presentation. Thanks Living Planet Aquarium for coming way out into the desert to share!
