The EcoLand Experience
Welcome to the EcoLand Experience!
First up, student meet Terry the Tree Frog, our friendly mascot who's ready to show you around! Then, teachers head to their classrooms while kids get sorted into small groups for awesome activities!  We've got a bunch of fun stuff lined up, and teachers can choose what works best for their students! Plus, we've got handy Learning Activity Guides packed with sample lesson plans and all the materials you'll need.  And don't worry, everything we do here follows state guidelines and offers cool extensions for even more learning fun! ?? Let's dive in and make some memories together! 

Zooming with Terry & Friends

Get ready for "Zooming with Terry & Friends" at EcoLand!
We're thrilled to offer free live animal interactions via Zoom to members of Academic Content Coop or the Region 7 Head Start Grant. It's a fantastic chance for students to practice their online skills, like asking questions, chatting, and even sharing their screen! And don't fret - you can still schedule in-person EcoLand Experiences for your class too. Offerings change monthly, so be sure to check our website's "Schedule Your Experience" section for available interactions on the event calendar. Let's make learning fun, whether online or in-person!
What our young scientists are saying...
Testimonials below

They really enjoyed all the fun tools provided for each learning center. I think having the gloves, shovels, magnifying glasses, and so much more really helped them to get into the center and enrich the learning part of it. I would like to start providing more fun tools like that in my own classroom during stations and centers, so that maybe they can really dive in and use each center to its full potential.  EcoLand was nothing short of AMAZING! My students enjoyed themselves and learned so much. We had a blast exploring each room and the students didn't want to leave. I wish we had all of those resources in our own classroom to make every day special for them.

Courtney Evans – Cushing ISD - PreK

My students' favorite part was using the magnifying glasses, rulers, & binoculars to just freely observe the garden area. I plan to work in more time especially in the spring for us to do things like that. They also really enjoyed the weigh stations with the rocks and buckets. I am going to create a Montessori lesson similar for my shelf and the students will be able to choose that as work during our Montessori block.  Students are allowed to explore and observe using scientific tools, build vocabulary, classify, sort, have discussion and explain their learning. There are so many activities that align with many of our PreK guidelines.  Our experience was great!!! The staff is so helpful and really helps the trip to run smoothly. I appreciate everything they do and their effort to always check in frequently to make sure we don't help of any kind.
