September 20th – Introduction to program & ‘Classification Stations’
Welcome back to homeschool at the zoo! We will do a quick reintroduction to our homeschool program followed by some classification activities and a meet n’ greet with some live animals from the animal groups that we discuss.
October 25th – ‘Preparing for winter’
How do you prepare for winter? This month we will talk about the many ways that our native animals prepare themselves for the harsh winter months here in upstate New York. There will be some live animal meet n’ greets with our resident native creatures, as well as a little-guided exploration to a native animals exhibit to learn about how we keep our animals warm here at the zoo.
This class will include a small pumpkin to paint or take home to carve (paint will be provided during the class).
November 8th – ‘Animal Coverings’
Have you ever thought about why an animal might be covered with either fur, feathers, or scales? We will discuss the many different ways that animals keep themselves safe in their environment, as well as meet some live animals from around the world with unique coverings.
