Rainforest in a Bottle

There are so many different kinds of ecosystems around the world – rainforests, deserts, grasslands, tundra, and more! Each of these ecosystems are made up of living species and non-living things that keep it together. You will make your own miniature ecosystems in a terrarium and observe the parts working together!

Constellation Light Box

Throughout the centuries, people have looked to the stars to navigate across open oceans or featureless deserts, know when to plant and harvest, and preserve their myths and folklore. To make it easier to 'read' the stars, they grouped the brighter stars into readily recognizable shapes known as constellations. Recycle a cereal box into a light box with your favorite zodiac constellation!
