Program Descriptions

Local Legends: Animals of Southeast Texas (Fall/Winter/Spring) 

Video Description: Investigate the animals who call Southeast Texas home. It’s exciting to explore exotic animals, but our Texas animal friends deserve some attention too. Show off your Texas pride by getting to know the animals with whom we share our state. We’ll explore animals that live in the swamp, forest, meadow, and bayou. Can you guess who we might meet on this adventure?! 

Classroom Kit Description: Use what you discovered to play Local Legends BINGO! But wait, this is not just a regular bingo game, it’s also an exciting challenge. The student who calls BINGO first even gets a prize! 

H2O Inspectors (Spring) 

Video Description: Come on a virtual adventure as we explore the major water features around Shangri La Gardens. We’ll discover how water interacts with the rest of the ecosystem, and where water goes when it rains. We’ll feature Adams Bayou, the watershed for portions of Orange and surrounding cities, and investigate the connection between the watershed and our community. 

Classroom Kit Description: Introduce your students to the experimental process. We’ll send a sample from Adams Bayou back to your classroom along with a water quality testing kit. Students will be tasked to compare the water quality from Adams Bayou with the water from their school’s tap and then explore what their results mean. 

*This lesson will not include goggles for students, goggles need to be provided by school
