Catch the Bug
Going Green

An exciting adventure that will take your students on a journey that will teach them about Reducing, Re-using, Recycling and Composting. Going Green has never been so fun.

Going Green is a very hot topic right now. When you combine it with story telling, magic and audience participation, you can’t go wrong. This is your chance to do your part for our environment and have fun at the same time. Catch the Bug has been very popular because of the content and because Carolina Zelnik looks like he should be in a movie. This fun filled program will have the children learning and laughing and thinking of ways to keep the planet green.
