Please join us for this fun learning experience, where your students will enjoy peer to peer learning about endangered species from all over the world!

WHEN: Stay tuned for the 2018 Endangered Species Day Dates
 

What will go on at Endangered Species Day?

Upon entering the Zoo, attending students will receive a passport to visit all the stations scattered throughout Zoo grounds. Once they have interacted or participated at each station, presenting students will give them a stamp on their passport. They can then move to the next station to learn more! (This accomplishes the peers teaching peers element.) Endangered Species Day is recommended for school groups between Kindergarten and 8th Grade.

We will have interactive stations about:
African black-footed penguins, Sumatran orangutans, Mexican grey wolves, Amur tigers, reticulated giraffes, the black rhino and many more!

What benefits do you and your students receive?

  • Meet common core state standards.
  • Engage in cross-curriculum collaboration.
  • Your students will refine scientific argumentation, deliberation, and communication/presentation skills.

 

Cost:

$10.75 per attending student
1 adult at $0.75 for every 10 students
$17.75 per extra adult
