An interactive encounter where children can TOUCH, SEE & LEARN

Animals on the Move is privileged to bring you up close and personal with a diverse range of bugs.

Backyard Bugs is a program that lets children get up close and personal with some of our most common outdoor critters. We will teach the importance of each and every one of these furry, creepy looking bugs and the vital role they play in our
ecosystem. From snails to spiders, and lots in-between.We bring a
variety of insects frozen in time in clear Lucite for the children to
examine up close, as well as some live bugs to observe and interact

Animals on the Move Backyard Bugs is the perfect program to educate children on how our everyday life effects these critters and just how much we need them, as much as some of us wish they weren’t there.
There is plenty to learn, observe and discover when creepy crawlies come to visit! If you have something you wish NOT to come and visit we can tailor the program to suit!

Backyard Bugs and Early Learning

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Backyard Bugs can be grouped and classified on the basis of observable features. For example; Bugs that have wings compared to bugs with legs and ones that have mucas.

The Animals on the Move mobile Backyard Bugs encounter clearly demonstrates the diverse structural features of each creature and ways in which they adapt to help them survive in their environment.

Our Bug Handlers explain and discuss how the growth and survival of living things are effected by the physical conditions of their environment and the importance of wildlife conservation.
