|Interactive K-12 School Programs|
|Enter the earth at your school to learn about our amazing planet. Earth Adventure travels to schools across the country providing interactive science and geography-based programs. We have been improving and expanding geographic awareness and literacy with our programs since 1992.
Earth Adventure programs complement K–12 curriculum and reinforce education standards. All programs are grade-level appropriate. Because we bring the program to your site, there is no busing and no hassle. We work with individual classes and can accommodate up to 12 classes per day. Our instructor teaches all programs and provides a content-rich, and unforgettable school assembly.
Earth Adventure programs feature the Earth Balloon, a 20' diameter model of the earth. Students enter into the Earth Balloon to learn about rain forests, eco-systems, plate tectonics, geography and more. The program includes a grade level appropriate study guide with pre-program prep materials as well as post-program reinforcement activities.
Visit our website (www.earthadventure.org) for program details and costs as well as our year end performance “report card”. 100% of participating teachers felt that Earth Adventure’s unique method of providing instruction created an opportunity for increased excitement and engagement by students in science and geography concepts. 763-785-7876

|Shih Enterprises, Inc.|
|Big Ideas about THE ENVIRONMENT!|
|Patricia Shih tours throughout North America and travels to California at least twice a year, making her shows highly affordable. So YOU CAN bring this internationally acclaimed artist to your audiences within almost any budget.
A sumptuous feast that asks the audience "What can each one of us do to help make the world a cleaner, safer place for all living things?" Includes compassion for other species and caring for each other and ourselves.
All songs include audience participation; children and adults may be clapping, singing, moving, using sign language and critical thinking, and guest-starring onstage with Patricia and her accompanist. Song styles range from folk, rock, country, Broadway, jazz, even rap!
Support materials will be sent one month in advance to prepare the children. They are a study guide, CD and poster. The CD will have a sticker on it to specify which songs should be highlighted and played for the children. It is STRONGLY recommended that the students are prepared in advance, as the show will be much more valuable to them if they know what to expect. And, the excitement level will be very high even before she steps into the school!
