Fifth-grade students will go on an exciting quest into the Zoo to learn how changes in the environment have affected animals worldwide and how humans are helping endangered species.
Students will meet live animals as they learn about animal adaptations, life cycles, behaviors, and physical characteristics. An exploration of ZooLab pond with microscopes will illuminate the diversity of living organisms and the importance of water cycles. We’ll be going “paws on” at the Zoo to learn more about environmental changes, endangered species and how to help!
