Rock out with our reptiles! Students learn about our friendly coldblooded critters, what they eat how they shed their skin and their different habitats. Meet a bearded dragon, gecko, uromastyx lizard, tortoise and ball python snake.
Presentations may be scheduled in the classroom, media center, gym, library or cafeteria.
If there are no indoor rooms available, the presentation area must be in the shade outside with a limit of 4 hours in one day. Temporary tents blow in the wind and a shaded area from trees eventually turns to a sunny spot. Please reserve space under a permanent pavilion type structure. If you need more than 4 hours to accommodate your students, we will schedule another day to complete the in-school field trip. The limit on time outdoors is for the well-being of the students, presenters and animals (The reptiles love the heat, but some of our bugs, mammals and arachnids may not survive all day outdoors in their containers).

Now you may copy and paste Science Standards into your lesson plans! For your convenience, we’ve made a list of Florida standards that are introduced or reinforced during each STEAM City Kids program. Our experienced presenters adjust the content of each presentation to according to the grade level standards, interests and special needs of each group.
