Tyke Explorers: Hairy Mammals

Copernicus Room

Expand your preschooler's (ages 3-5) universe by enrolling in our Tyke Explorers Program. Kids get to bring a special grown-up to share in the excitement of science and space. Classes are a combination of instructor-led lessons and self-guided, hands-on experimentation and exploration. With Chabot's park-like setting, hands-on exhibits, laboratories and experienced educators, we guarantee a memorable adventure for you and your child.

The Living Earth – Over the next three months, we will be uncovering the mysteries of the living Earth! Find out about the diverse animals on earth including those with backbones, exoskeletons, shells, and more! We’ll then learn about the requirements to be alive and how worms help many plants live by making vermicompost. We’ll finish the unit with a day planting fruits and vegetables in the Chabot garden!
