Art After Dark: Madagascar Over

An offering by Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

This series of professional development sessions will be centered around the Zoo’s formal curriculum pieces. Each session will explore how you can incorporate specific lessons into your classrooms whether you teach kindergarten or high school biology. All lessons are aligned to Nebraska Career and College Readiness Standards. These lessons were designed by teachers for teachers! Art teacher Rebekah Pilypaitis of Bryan High School will join us and teach participants techniques to help students incorporate different art mediums into science, technology engineering and math. Join us for a professional development like no other! Registration is limited so grab your sketch book and meet us at the Zoo for a wild good time! (participant will need to bring their own art supplies)

Workshops are $50/Session

Madagascar is home to unique amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds, and mammals. Over 80% of Madagascar's animals are endemic, meaning they are found nowhere else on Earth. To date, Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has named 21 new species of lemurs. The lessons found in the Madagascar curriculum explore the unique plants and animal of this island by having students analyze DNA, study dichotomous keys, research deforestation and explore how conservation issues impact culture and economics. With this education guide not only can apply these concepts to daily lessons but inspire students to conserve and educate in hopes that many more generations will have an opportunity to appreciate this diverse island.
