WELCOME TO VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS!
Designed for students in grades K – 5, we’re bringing the amazing animals and team members from Butterfly Wonderland LIVE to your class through a virtual broadcast, along with informative videos and curriculum-based activities that can be used before or after your LIVE session to introduce and reinforce STEM concepts.
“We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are a small rural school 85 miles west of Phoenix and with all of the COVID rules, our students and community have had little exposure to the outside world. Although we have had many virtual assemblies, this was the first virtual field trip ever!…It was apparent that you guys are very professional, prepared, and engaging…Our students learned so much from your presentation that they were telling our superintendent all about it in pick-up and drop-off.”
– Elementary Class, Paloma Elementary School District
