Bring Denver Zoo’s education resources to your class. Opportunities are available for early childhood education through 12th grade students to learn about standards-based science concepts through live animal interactions, biofacts (such as skin and bones) exploration and hands-on activities in their own classroom. All classes are aligned to current Colorado Academic Standards where appropriate.
By meeting live animals and turning a classmate into an adaptive animal, learn how structures and systems can help animals survive in the wild.
Explore characteristics of different animals.
Work in teams at interactive stations to further investigate animal characteristics.
