Butterflies, Frogs, and Flowers, Oh My!:
Join Andrea & Anna to learn about frogs, butterflies, and other creatures that live in ponds and bogs, through interactive songs and stories from several cultures. Students will act out the life cycle of a butterfly, and participate in songs about frogs and their life cycles. They'll also learn about creature habitats and learn the importance of respect for the Earth and our fellow creatures.

Plants and Seeds: Join Andrea & Anna to learn through interactive stories and songs, about how seeds grow into plants, flowers, and trees.  Students will act out the life cycle of a plant from seed to tree, and brainstorm the many things a seed can become. They'll also learn about caring for plants by providing rich soil, water and sun, and other tips for good stewardship of the Earth. Folk tales will add dimension about the importance of seeds and plants to several different cultures.
