Homeschool Days

This two hour program takes our popular zoo classes and adds a homeschool twist.  Meet live animals, participate in hands-on activities and get a guided tour of exhibits.

1st-8th Grades:  Zoo in Motion

What goes up must come down! Let us explore motion in a zoo-tacular way. Ever wonder why ducks fly in a V or how a sea lion moves so quickly through the water? We will discuss and examine Newton’s three laws of motion and how they apply to the Zoo every day!

Afternoon Session (1st – 8th grade) 1:00pm. - 3:00pm.
