Blank Park Zoo Homeschool Safari

Explore the world of science through animals and nature. Join other homeschooling families for monthly hands-on, minds-on science including fun activities, demos and more. Monthly sessions frequently include touring the zoo, visiting with animal ambassadors, interacting with zookeepers, and experiencing other unique resources while building science knowledge.

Home School Safari classes are held from 1:30 pm - 3:45 pm.
Classes are organized in developmental age groups and are taught concurrently:

5-6 year olds

April 13, 2018 - Nature Play 
Being out in nature is not only fun, but it is good for your eyes, your brain and your heart!  We will be heading outside to CONNECT with NATURE and to discover ways to bring nature indoors to enjoy!

7-9 year olds

April 13, 2018 - Artsy Animals
Animals have been used as art subjects since prehistoric times. Some animals have even been known to be artists themselves! We will get a little messy while tapping into our creativity.

10 - 12 year olds

April 13, 2018 - How Do I Get There From Here?
Humans move from place to place by using landmarks, maps, GPS and compasses. In this session of Home School Safari we will explore the different methods animals use to find their way and we will even try out a few!

Please ensure your child is signed-up for the proper developmental age group.
