Processes of Life - Fourth Grade

Clouded leopard photoDuring this interactive fourth grade program students will travel behind the scenes and out into the Zoo on an exciting journey into the processes of life! 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. They will interact with our giant Earth ball as they recognize that the Earth revolves around the Sun in a year and how humans need both renewable and nonrenewable resources found on our planet. They will explore the Zoo in search of Florida native animals and plants to discover how seasonal changes can affect them and discover how plants, animals and humans can impact the environment.

Cycles in Nature - Fifth Grade

Two cheetahs photoCycles in Nature will take your fifth grade students on an exciting quest into the Zoo to explore how environmental changes and differences between individual animals and plants allows some to survive and reproduce while others die or move to new locations. Students will travel behind the scenes to ZooLab where they will meet live animals to learn how animals display adaptations that enable them to survive in different environments and have different life cycles, behaviors and physical characteristics. An exploration of ZooLab pond with microscopes will bring to light the diversity of living organisms and how the ocean is an integral part of the water cycle and is connected to all of the Earth's water reservoirs.
