Calling all homeschool parents and children! Looking for a creative learning opportunity? Love animals and conservation? Visit the Lehigh Valley Zoo during Homeschool Thursdays from March 18 – April 29 for a special educational experience our educators present to school groups throughout the year.
Discover wildlife like never before with a Zoo Tour where visitors and students learn about the adaptations, habitats, behaviors, and conservation statuses of resident Lehigh Valley Zoo animals. This professionally-guided tour with an education staff member will be available from 10:30AM-11:30AM.
Want an up-close animal experience? Sign up for our Animal Kingdom Presentation designed to give students an up-close encounter with zoo educational animals. Learn about their adaptations, behaviors, and the differences between species from 1:00PM – 2:00PM.
Both of these engaging multi-sensory experiences incorporate Common Core Standards, Pennsylvania Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content, and science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).
Tickets include daytime zoo admission for your selected date and admission for your selected activity. Spots are limited for our Zoo Tour and Animal Kingdom presentations, so make sure to reserve your spot today!
