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

March 9, 2018 - Wildlife is Everywhere!
In a tree, under a rock, on a flower, there are so very many places to find wildlife. In this session we'll explore and discover that wildlife is ALL AROUND US!

7-9 year olds

March 9, 2018 - Hooray for Herps!
Why do frogs croak?  How can a snake eat something bigger than its head?  Do alligators really carry their babies in their mouths? In this month’s session, we will take a closer look at the fascinating world of reptiles and amphibians.

10 - 12 year olds

March 9, 2018 - Zoo Mystery Pt 2
