Program Topics for Classroom & Assembly Programs

Talk about a wild way to get your students excited about education — we’ll bring the NEW Zoo right to you!  Our live animal ambassadors will be sure to liven up any classroom, special event, or school assembly.  We offer a variety of pre-designed programs, or we can tailor one specifically for your group’s needs.  Just let us know!  Each of the following programs can be delivered as a Class or Assembly, unless otherwise noted.  Although geared towards certain grade levels, we can adapt our programs (listed below) for nearly any audience.  Call for details.

Animal Storytime

Our educator will bring a fun, animal-themed story book to share with the audience. After the story, students will be introduced to up to four different animals – at least one of which they may be able to touch (based on children’s ages).  Recommended for audiences aged 5 and under.

Fur, Feathers, Shells & Scales

This basic introduction to animal classification focuses on animal ‘coverings’ to teach the differences among mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and invertebrates. Recommended for grades Pre-K through 2.

Home Sweet Habitat

Students will learn about different habitat types and the variety of animals that are found within them. Recommended for grades 1 through 4.

Animal Adaptations

This class defines and then focuses on physical and behavioral adaptations that animals have to survive in their environments.  Recommended for grades 4 through 6. Suitable for Meet & Greet programs.

Nocturnal Creatures

This program includes discussion on the differences between day– and night-active creatures, with a focus on how nocturnal animals are able to survive in diverse ecosystems. Recommended for grades pre-K through 6.

Conservation Connection

Students will examine the five major causes of species endangerment and extinctions worldwide.  Included is discussion on daily actions students can take to help protect animals and their environments.  Recommended for grades 6 through 12.  Suitable for Meet & Greet programs.

Program Topics for Meet & Greet Programs

Variety Meet & Greet

A variety of critters will visit your location. Expect a mix of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and maybe even an invertebrate or two. When appropriate, our Meet & Greets also include a tabletop display of other “touchable” items, such as animal pelts, feathers, and skull replicas.

 

Other Topics Available upon Request!

 

Program Topics for Birthday & Other Private Parties

Our most popular Private Parties are Birthday Parties.  These can be done at your home or other location, provided the location meets our temperature and other guidelines.  Each Private Party Zoomobile typically involves five animals.  Individual animals cannot be guaranteed in advance, due to animal temperaments and emergencies that can occur; however, we do take requests and try our best to accommodate them whenever possible.

Variety Party

This is our most popular Birthday Party program.  It includes visits from a “variety” of program animals, including mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and sometimes even invertebrates.
