Bring Zoological Society Programs to Your School

Bring the Zoo to your students by booking a Zoo educator visit for your classroom! This is a great way to help your students engage with animal and conservation curriculum when coordination and financial resources are too limited for a Zoo field trip for an entire class.

Our educators will travel to your school to deliver an interactive, standards-based lesson that includes either a live animal or animal biofacts for a personalized, hands-on experience! Teachers can choose from a number of different topics to help fulfill their science needs.

Pick the Perfect Program for Your Students

Zoological Society educators break down animal and wildlife themes through songs, pictures, movement, and biofacts such as fur, teeth, or bones, to help younger students connect to the material. Older students dive deeper into animals, science, and conservation through hands-on activities such as games, design challenges, and simulations. Some programs may include a live animal. These programs are available for schools a maximum of 30 miles from the Zoo. The first program is $120, and each additional program of the same type on the same day is $80.

Animal Athletes
Animal Athletes
(K5-2nd)

Can you run as fast as a cheetah or jump as far as a kangaroo? Students will find out who the animal kingdom’s top athletes are. We’ll play an “Animal Locomotion” matching game and practice some unique animal moves.

Critter Covers
Critter Covers
(K5-2nd)

Is it a mammal, bird, reptile, fish or amphibian? Students will learn about animal classification and meet a mystery critter. We’ll sing a special Critter Covers song, play a matching game and touch real fur, feathers and scales.

Habitats
Habitats
(2nd-3rd)

What makes a habitat a home? It’s all about food, water, shelter and space! From dodging predators to finding food, living in the wild has its challenges. Students will investigate a variety of habitats to learn how animals survive in them.

We are very grateful for the zoo programs that travel. It is great to have “Field trip” activities in the winter.

Great balance between teaching and having the kids interact. All the students were engaged the whole time!

I love how the program changes and improves every year. I appreciate the time taken to reflect and evaluate to make adjustments and improvements.

We are always so impressed by zoo instructors and their engaging presentations. The lesson was simple for children to learn and pay attention to! Very age appropriate. Thanks so much! We plan to have you back next year.
