Zoo To You:
The Zoo to You program is an in-class or after school program that is one hour a week for four weeks. Zoo to You participants will experience the Animal Kingdom through live animal encounters, activities, and creative design.
Choose one of our various educational boxes to rent by the week and bring the excitement of the animal kingdom to your classroom. Each box contains educational activities, animal artifacts, and an educational video to match the theme of the box. The boxes we have available for rent are:
□ Mystery Dinner Theatre: Look at the animal artifacts to figure out which animals ate the food in the zoo’s kitchen.
□ All About Beaks and Feet: Use the items within this box to learn how beaks and feet birds have adapted for what they eat and where they live.
□ Feathers, Fur and Scales: Use the items within this box to teach your students about the differences between birds, mammals and reptiles.
□ Design your own box: Want to rent a Discovery Box but can’t find one that suits your needs? Let our Education Staff know and we can collaborate to create a Discovery Box just you!
