Wonderful World of Habitats

2-4 Hour Experience at Your Home

What is a habitat and what purpose do different habitats serve? Teacher Quincy will guide young animal lovers and planet protectors through learning and inquiry to help answer these very questions! A cut and paste activity to match animals with their habitats will kick this adventure off; and, if weather permits, the next stop will incorporate a movement break outdoors to see if any animal habitats can be observed in the wild.

Quincy will layer in books about different animals and the homes they inhabit, and children will be asked to imagine and brainstorm their own shelter or habitat for a very special animal: one that's fictional, or was observed or discussed earlier in the experience! By the end, children will present the purpose of all of the components of the habitat they constructed. By beginning with animals and empathy for others, children will be prompted to think about our own, human habitat, the Earth, and why it's so important we all continue to care for this place we and so many animals call 'home.' 🌎

What Parents are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
