Homeschool Programs

Homeschool ZooClass 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!

Details about our next Homeschool ZooClass:

Megaherbivores | For children ages 6-8

Some of the biggest animals around eat only plants! In this ZooClass series, we will explore the diets of megaherbivores, and find out what else makes these animals unique. Through tours, crafts, activities and program animal presentations, we will explore: animal diets, adaptations, animal roles in their environment, African animals, and more!

Love it Local | For children ages 9-12

Come learn with us at the Zoo as we explore our local habitat! Each class in our series will focus on a different local animal and its particular needs and challenges. Students will have the chance to meet some of the program animals, work on projects both solo and as part of a group, as well as exploring our awesome Zoo.
