VIRTUAL – Zoo Explorers

Third Grade

Third graders will rotate through three exciting learning stations as they take a walk on the wild side!

Program Description

Students will discover the differences and similarities between the vertebrate classes by meeting some of our animal ambassadors up close online. They will travel the globe on a virtual tour of the Zoo to identify continents, animals that live there, and learn about their statuses in the wild. A virtual trip into bear habitat will help students learn about umbrella species, and discovery stations will show how math, science and problem-solving skills help us care for the animals.
