K – 2 Grade: Energetic Eaters
Feed your curiosity and learn what animals eat. In this class, your child will chow down with herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores to uncover the links between animals in the intricate web of life. The children might even prepare a couple of meals for our animals at the Memphis Zoo.
3–5 Grade: Science of Saving Species
Going, Going, Saved! Investigate why species become endangered and which animals have already been saved from extinction. In this class, students will learn the issues impacting critically endangered species and what efforts scientists, zoos, and everyday people are taking to support conservation.
6–8 Grade: Biomes & Ecosystems
Climb the layers of the rainforest, swim the depths of the ocean, and hide in the tall grasses of the savanna. In this class, students will race around the world discovering the different biomes and exploring the adaptations needed to survive Earth’s varied environments.
