Third Grade: Curric-ZOO-lum

Screech Owl photoYour third graders will rotate through three exciting learning stations as they take a walk on the wild side! Inside our Discovery Center 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 how animals respond to the changing seasons. A trip past the porcupines into the Spiny Garden will take students to see a different kind of wildlife as they recognize that plants use energy from the sun, air and water to make their own food. Experience the wonders of wildlife!
