New to ZooED? 

    Let's get started!


ZooED is free and accessible to all teachers and educational institutions in Jackson and Clay counties. To begin using the material in your classroom, follow the first step below!

Become a ZooED Teacher


To start exploring ZooED with your students, attend a short training class to learn how to incorporate the curriculum into your classroom and receive your 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 from September - February for the main school year and in May for the summer session. 

What if you want to start using a different level 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 if structure and receive your new teacher materials. 


Training Sessions 

ZooED Training Sessions with resume in the fall. 

Training sessions occur at the Kansas City Zoo's education office. Please anticipate the training to last 30-45 minutes.

If you are unsure of what curriculum to sign up for overviews of our programing here.


Once trained, you will have access to curriculum and all online teacher resources in our

Teacher Portal!
