Students meet Rosie, the Chilean Rosehair Tarantula!
Through guided observation of a live, on-camera animal, we'll discover what
makes a tarantula an arachnid. Through inquiry (questions submitted ahead of
time or during broadcast), students find out more about how she lives and come
to appreciate her as more than just a big, hairy spider.

Butterfly Pavilion

Westminster, CO
United States

Butterfly Pavilion was founded in 1995 as the first stand-alone invertebrate zoo in the nation with a mission to foster an appreciation of invertebrates while educating the public about the importance of conservation of threatened habitats in the tropics and around the world.

Program Details


Through a combination of engaging images and a live tarantula, students will be introduced to Rosie and discover what adaptations help her to survive in her habitat. Plus, students will gain an appreciation for what makes arachnids cool, and not just scary. With the printable What Makes a Rosie handout, students will be able to follow along in identifying Rosie's arachnid anatomy and labeling their own tarantula to take home.

Students will be able to chime in with what they know and pose questions to the presenter through both polling questions and live chat.


1. Students will be able to identify elements of an arachnid’s anatomy on a spider.
2. Students will forge a new connection with arachnids and gain appreciation for their importance.

• (I THINK) I can identify the parts of an arachnid’s body and how it is unique from other animals.
• (I FEEL) I can appreciate the importance of arachnids and connect with them as living things.
• (I DO) I can reduce my own and others’ fear responses to spiders through better understanding.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

Next Generation Science Standards
• K-LS1-1. Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
• 1-LS1-2. Read texts and use media to determine patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive.
• 2-LS4-1. Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
• 3-LS1-1. Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.
• 3-LS4-3. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.
• 4-LS1-1. Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
• 5-LS2-1. Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.
• MS-LS1-4. Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively.
• MS-LS1-5. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.

• LS09-GR.8-S.2-GLE.1 Human activities can deliberately or inadvertently alter ecosystems and their resiliency
• LS09-GR.8-S.2-GLE.2 Organisms reproduce and transmit genetic information (genes) to offspring, which influences individuals’ traits in the next generation
• LS09-GR.HS-S.2-GLE.2 The size and persistence of populations depend on their interactions with each other and on the abiotic factors in an ecosystem
