Each Lindsay in the Classroom program utilizes grade-specific Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to satisfy specific learning objectives. The programs are described in the table below and organized by grade level.
AVAILABILITY: Tuesday through Thursday.
Maximum of two programs per day– if booking more than one program please note that we will only allow a 45-minute break in total between the programs.
START TIME: As early as 10:00 – 10:30 a.m, 2:00 p.m. is our latest start time.
DURATION: 60 minutes
GROUP SIZE: one classroom (30 students max) per program
COST: $275 for the first presentation, $225 for the second class (must be on the same day)
FORMAT: One-hour classroom program in which Lindsay animals and Wildlife Educators visit your location. For the animals’ safety and the success of the program, Lindsay asks for one indoor or outdoor location (classroom, library, or multi-purpose room).
Please note that our Lindsay in the Classroom programs are geared toward elementary school students. If you have an older audience, please consider scheduling a Lindsay in the Community program.

Let Lindsay transform your classroom into a special habitat where animal puppet friends introduce your students to ponds and how to best care for them.
NGSS: While standards are not required at this level, our young scientists will engage in science and engineering practices backed by NGSS methods.
We all need a healthy place to live and grow–wildlife are no exception! Play and problem-solve together to figure out how we can better share our world with wildlife.
NGSS: Fulfills elements of K-LS-1, K-ESS2-2, & K-ESS3.C
Grade 1st - 3rd
|Learning from Wildlife|
Wildlife can teach us a lot about how to survive in the natural world. Let’s explore animal adaptations and how we can learn from them to meet our own human needs.
NGSS: Fulfills elements of 1-LS1 (A, B, D), 2-LS4 D, 3-LS3 (A, B, D)
Grade 2nd - 4th
|Have to Have a Habitat|
How do adaptations help animals survive in certain habitats? This program investigates an animal’s physical adaptations to determine if they could survive in California’s diverse ecosystems.
NGSS: Fulfills elements of 2-LS4-1, 2-LS4.D, 3-LS4.C, 3-LS4.D, 4-LS1.D, 4-ESS3.A, & 4-ESS3.B.
|Ecosystem Energy Flow|
Follow energy as it flows through an ecosystem and meet some of the producers, consumers, and decomposers that make the system work.
NGSS:Fulfills elements of 5-LS1.C, 5-LS2.B, 5-LS2.A, & 5-ESS3.C
