Have you ever felt the tough armor of a Three-Banded Armadillo, observed an African Penguin waddle, or touched an Argentine Black and White Tegu while it sticks out its long tongue to smell? At Lehigh Valley Zoo, we connect people with wildlife using experiences such as these in everything we do. With a focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in conjunction with conservation, the Zoo’s Education Department provides engaging resources for school and home school educators to make learning relevant and exciting for students. All education programs are aligned to meet Common Core Standards, Pennsylvania Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content and are available for Pre-K through 12th grade.
For science teachers looking for a living laboratory, pre-school teachers wanting to introduce science in an exciting way, home-school parents needing help with their science curriculum, or parents looking for a Smart FUN adventure for their children – Lehigh Valley Zoo’s Education Department can be your comprehensive guide for programs, parties and classes.
