Homeschool Programs

Homeschool Zoo Class is a four-session series of classes designed for homeschool families and based on our most popular thematic programs. Projects worked on throughout the four sessions encourage both individual and group learning, while providing students with the opportunity to take an extended and interdisciplinary look at the wonders of the Zoo! Homeschool ZooClass is non-refundable.

Spring Homeschool ZooClass: March 9, 16, 23, 30 from 12 – 4 pm

Create-a-Creature | For children ages 6-8

Students will explore their artistic side in this class about animal adaptations and how they work together to create the animals we know and love! They will get to create their own creature based on their favorite adaptations and figure out where it would like to live. Students will also spend time doing projects and activities, meeting ambassador animals, and exploring the Zoo.

Zoo Mythbusters | For children ages 9-12

Are bats really blind? Can porcupines really shoot their quills at you? We will debunk or validate some myths as we dive into the science and discover some of the most interesting and misunderstood animals in the animal kingdom. Students will also spend time doing projects and activities, meeting ambassador animals, and exploring the Zoo.
