Field Trip or In Classroom

The Salamander Room – Year Round

Based on the book by the same name, this is an interactive program where students help transform a child’s bedroom into a suitable habitat for a salamander. As we progress through the book, students add elements to our “bedroom” to recreate the vision from the book.

This program can be done as a field trip visit to the BCCD or as an in-school program, where we come to you. Field trips include a nature walk, time to visit our nature center, and time for lunch if desired. This program addresses Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards (2.A.ECa, 2.B.ECa, 2.B.ECb, 2.D.ECa, 12.B.ECa, 12.B.ECb, 13.B.ECa).
