Quarium Classes

These Labs are an extension of the science classroom with hands-on experiments which may include animal experiences. All Labs include assessments, an introduction and are aligned to the Georgia Performance Standards (a complete list of standards are available upon visit or by contacting us at 229-639-2650).

Each Lab is 1 hour in length and is available for a minimum of 15 students and maximum of 40 students per Lab. Due to space limitations only school staff will be allowed to Lab. All school staff admitted free of charge to Labs only.  Labs are available year-round, during normal operation days from 9:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m.

Predator-Prey - Grades 3-5

It is "survival of the fittest" in this program. Your students will learn how organisms are highly adapted for survival and interact among trophic levels to form food webs. They will also understand how predators and prey are beneficial to one another. Predator-prey interactions will be observed by students first hand. Students will focus on animal habitats, adaptations or classification depending on grade level.
