All about dinosaurs, dino dancing, hatching dinos, and more!
Today we will discover the animals that lived on planet Earth before the current animals did. Thats right, today we meet a T-Rex, a Brontosaurus, a Pterodactyl and other scary dinosaurs. We will learn some dino dances, stomp, chomp and roar. We will head to the famous dinosaur museum to see their skeletons and learn more interesting facts about these "animals of the past". Once back at Academicus, more excitement awaits with a dinosaur craft and something special for Valentine's Day.

Sharks, crabs, lobster, penguins and ice-skating - so much fun!
Today we will talk about animals that live in the water; lakes, seas and oceans. Does an underwater unicorn really exist?! Yes! Why can these creatures live underwater and we cant? After a morning of learning, fun, games and crafts, we will head over to the Heuried Ice Skating facility to test our penguin-like skating and sliding skills. Back at Academicus a book about a shark and a shark craft awaits us!
Thursday 16th February 2023 - why cant I fly like a bird?
Birds, planes, balloons and other flying creatures.
Today we get to know some flying, swimming and running birds. Why can birds fly like an airplane? Which bird is the fastest? We will create our own birds nests with two little birds:) Today we will head to the Zoological museum and watch out for more birds there. After that we will jump on a boat and head to the park for some more fun. We will look out for more birds, of course, feed some swans and see some divers. Eventually, we will head back to Academicus for some final crafts and fun!
Friday 17th February 2023 - Marsupials? What's that?
Australian animals are super special and a visit to the Zoo
To complete our fantastic week of jam-packed activities, we will learn about some special animals living on the smallest continent - Australia. What is a joey? Have you ever heard a Tasmanian Devil roar? After a morning of exploration of the animals from "Down Under", we will head over to the Zoo to see if we can find them and all the other animals from this week's discoveries.
Such a great way to end this fantastic week full of learnings, fun and discovery!
