Theater Program Experience
Program Objectives and Academic Standards

Want a more focused, standards-based experience for your students but are short on time? The Desert Survivors Theater program is a great choice. This multi-media program combines live animals, pictures, and video to help your students discover the adaptations that plants and animals use to survive and thrive in our desert climate. The program accommodates a large group in just forty minutes, so participants will have plenty of time to explore the museum grounds. Download the "I Spy Adaptations" Field Guide (and Answer Key) and use it during your exploration of the Museum's exhibits.

Offered: Tuesday through Friday.
Length: 30-40 minutes
