Whether you’re teaching remotely or in the classroom, we can virtually present interactive science content to your kids. Activity kits include all the materials for fun, hands-on exploration that aligns with state standards.
⭐ Virtual Field Trips for Classroom Learning: Programs marked with a gold star are available as virtual experiences for in-person learners in their classrooms.
🟢 Virtual Field Trips for Remote Learning: Programs marked with a green circle are available as virtual at-home experiences for remote learners.
Grades Pre-K & K
What’s the weather like? Design a weather report folder to use for observing and describing the weather. Students will see how weather affects our daily lives while drawing clothes on their weather bears.
Students will build their own terrarium to take home while investigating living and non-living things.
NGSS: K-LS1-1, K-ESS3-1, K-ESS3-3, 1-LS1-1
⭐🟢 Moon Phases
Make a glow in the dark moon phase book that will help kids explore the predictable pattern of the shapes of the moon we can see on Earth.
What makes sound? Students will find out as they investigate vibrations, pitch and loudness with fun hands-on activities.
NGSS: 1-PS4-1, 1-PS4-4
⭐ Build Your Own Ecosystem
Investigate ecosystems and the water cycle, and learn what living things need to survive. Students will build an independent ecosystem to take home.
NGSS: 1-LS1-1, 2-LS2-1, 4-LS1-1, 5-LS1-1
Explore Earth! Students will use clay to sculpt mountains, valleys, plains, plateaus, and other major landforms. Investigate where on earth these landforms can be found and what forces help shape our world. Discover the many different landforms that are located in our very own state of Michigan!
GLCE: E.SE.02.21, 3-G1.0.1, 3-G1.0.2
⭐ Fossil Science
Make a plaster fossil model to take home and touch real fossils, while learning how fossils are formed and how they provide evidence of life long ago.
⭐🟢 Build-A-Buggy Challenge
Students will investigate how the shape of a vehicle affects its ability to move through the air. Design and build an aerodynamic buggy and then use a ramp and fan to see how far the buggy can travel.
NGSS: 3-PS2-1, 3-PS2-2
⭐ Cardboard Automata
Create moving sculptures while investigating motion. Learn how camshafts in car engines change the direction of a force while building cams and cam followers that make your artwork spin, twirl, and dip.
NGSS: 3-PS2-1, 3-PS2-2
⭐ Amusement Park Science
Students will explore forces and motion, while re-creating some of their favorite amusement park rides. Find out why you don't fall out when a ride goes upside down. Investigate contact and non-contact forces, while designing a tabletop marble roller coaster.
⭐🟢 Moon Phases & Eclipses
Students will make a glow-in-the-dark moon phase book and an eclipse project while exploring the motion of the Earth and Moon.
