Animal Trackers

Fourth Grade

Fourth graders will travel behind the scenes and out into the Zoo on an exciting journey into the processes of life!

Program Description

ZooLab is where they will meet live animals up close as they study how energy from the sun is transferred along the food chain and how animal behaviors are shaped by heredity and learning and how energy travels the food chain. They will interact with our giant Earthball to discover how the Earth, Moon, and Sun revolve and the importance of our planet’s resources. From giraffes to rhinos, bears to cheetahs, students will go in search of biomes found around the world and the animals that live there.
