Animals of Irvine

Ages 6-9


Biology and science skills abound as children study Maryland’s native creatures. Activities align with the seasonal habits of animals. Exploration, observation, experimentation and documentation of discoveries are all part of our learning process. Each week, we’ll ‘meet’ an animal that will frame our study for the day. On occasion, we’ll go behind the scenes in Irvine’s animal care lab and exhibit hall to get an up-close look at how Irvine cares for its animal ambassadors. Then we’ll don our boots and grab our animal guides to search for their cousins, or the clues they leave behind, out in the wilds of Irvine.
