Third Grade: Zoo Explorers

Third Grade: Zoo Explorers

Screech Owl photoYour third graders will rotate through three exciting learning stations as they take a walk on the wild side! Inside our classroom students will meet live animals as they discover the differences and similarities between the vertebrate classes. They will travel the globe as they tour the Zoo to identify continents, animals that live there, and learn about their statuses in the wild. A trip into bear habitat helps students learn about umbrella species, and discovery stations will show how math, science and problem-solving skills help us care for the animals. Experience the wonders of wildlife!

New third grade program! Formerly known as "Curric-ZOO-lum". It now includes visiting the Zoo's exciting new bear habitat!
