VIRTUAL – Zoo Keeper 101

Second Grade

Your second graders have just been hired as Zoo Keepers. What will their new job entail?

Program Description

Students will learn the ropes of being an animal specialist as they rotate through different virtual learning stations. They will meet animals up close live from our classroom as they compare the basic needs. While in the Zoo on a virtual tour of animals from around the world they will discover how Zoo Keepers plan animal habitats to meet the needs of each animal. Then we’ll virtually explore wild Florida as we travel into bear habitat to learn how Keepers care for Florida’s wildlife!
