Little Life Workshop

Little Life Workshop

Investigate life cycles and ecological relationships in a fun interactive workshop

Hands-on biology workshop for early learners!

Your children will gain an appreciation of the complexity of life in this fun workshop when your preschool becomes a hands-on biology lab!

  • Check out our mini-beasts, are they male or female?
  • Learn about life cycles and basic ecological relationships between plants and animals.
  • How do biologists track animals? What techniques do animals use to hide?
  • What are the parts of flowers? Your kids will investigate these plus much more!

Designed for exploration, your children will learn about the relationships between animals and plants as they rove among the stations.
