*** We Offer TWO Formats of Sharing Tails ***
In-school Field Trip
Primarily for kindergarten if this your school’s first year with our program as we hope to visit these kids as they move on to first and second grades, allowing our program to build each year as the kids grow and learn! Our fee* includes an in-school field trip for the entire kindergarten grade level with 1) pre- and post-visit presentation materials and 2) ~ 45 min presentation at your school with hands-on activities. Our program does not bring live fish as most Arizona fishes are threatened or endangered, but we bring lots of pictures, videos and props for kids to see and touch! For an additional fee*, schools may purchase fish toys, stickers or temporary tattoos!
Camp Sharing Tails
If your elementary school already has an after-school care program, we can bring Sharing Tails to your school for an all-ages (K-5 or 8) after school, single-day camp! Kids will learn about Arizona native fishes through a fun, interactive presentation, experience what it is like to be a fish scientist with hands-on activities and gain appreciation for our state’s unique natural resources! Our fee* includes a two hour, onsite program with 1) presentation and 2) hands-on activities. Our program does not bring live fish as most Arizona fishes are threatened or endangered, but we bring lots of pictures, videos and props for kids to see and touch!
