alling all students who are missing the classroom this fall!
We are excited to introduce the Lehigh Valley Zoo’s Creatures and Curriculum program where students will be joined by our Education Specialists for a one-of-a-kind, hands-on learning experience.
During this two hour program, students will get up close with some of the Lehigh Valley Zoo’s most popular ambassador animals and will dive into learning about subjects that can include: habitats, animal adaptations, animal life cycles, and biodiversity.
But not only does this program include classroom time; students will also have the opportunity to engage in out-door learning activities such as: zoo tours, nature hikes, and creek studies.
Future dates to be determined – check back in the fall of 2021!
