"Students were engaged and interested in the program. They used higher thinking skills as they participated in the program. It is very well integrated into the science curriculum we follow. It also gives the children a real world perspective."
"Students had not been introduced to the vocabulary or carnivore, herbivore and omnivore prior to this program and in the days since, students have been using that vocab during our story "Seeds." Its a story about plants and many students remembered that herbivores eat plants :)"
