Live Animal services we offer:
The Science Center will provide the animal, cage, food and shavings for the year. Your class will provide all the care and attention, including long weekends and vacations. Ms. Pavlicek will do a short presentation on the animal, provide some good care tips and spend some time answering student questions.
(Up to 2-3 weeks): The animal, cage, food, bedding and a care sheet are delivered upon teacher request. Each animal comes with a hands-on kit, filled with lots of educational materials for your class. Ms. Pavlicek will provide a short care lesson and answer questions if possible. A great addition to your class for observations and activities.
Ms. Pavlicek offers a variety of classroom animal programs for your Science Curriculum units. These are typically using animals that a classroom teacher can not have as a loan. Animals include: hawk, owl, alligator, large snakes, adult snapping turtle, hedgehog, ferrets and many more!
We will provide the tank, filter, fish and food for your class.
The Science Center has developed an animal policy to insure the safety of the students and teachers in Burlington. Classroom teachers are to check with the Science Center before allowing a student to bring in an animal from home.
Science Center Aides and Volunteers
High School students are welcome during the school year to assist us with daily tasks. They can take our class during a study period and gain extra curricular credits. Students help with things from animal care to packaging materials. We also have several town volunteers that come in to lend us a hand throughout the year. We greatly appreciate all the help from the students and volunteers. They are an invaluable asset to our program!
