Become a ZooED Teacher

 

To start exploring ZooED with your students, attend a short training to learn how to incorporate the curriculum into your classroom and receive your teaching materials. Training is required for all new teachers interested in using ZooED, but you only need to attend one session for each program you decide to use. Trainings occur from September - February for the main school year and in May for the summer session. 

Already a Trained TEacher But Want To Start a Different Curriculum?

There are three different levels to the ZooED curriculum.  If you are switching grades and wish to request a different level of ZooED than previously used, you will need to come in for an additional training as each level varies in structure. 

Training Sessions 

Training sessions occur at the Kansas City Zoo and Aquarium's education office. Please anticipate the training to last 45-60 minutes.

If you are unsure as to which curriculum to sign up for, descriptions of our programs can be found here.
