Brick Lab – Zoo

Animal Adaptations and Ecosystems

Traverse tricky terrain, shake claws with lobsters, and design ecosystems in this life science enrichment program. Exploring the globe, students discover the diversity of animal adaptations, the differences in habitats, and what’s necessary for each biome’s survival. They’ll travel from the sands of the Sahara to the peaks of the Himalayas, investigating complex creatures as they build models of each animal, focusing-in on the biological diversity that makes them special. Through creative thinking, collaboration, and multi-subject integration, BrickLAB Zoo fosters a unique bond to the Earth’s biospheres and the vital roles animals play in them.
