Enrich Your ZooED Curriculum With a...
All Jackson and Clay county schools are offered one free Zoomobile or field trip to the Kansas City Zoo per class per school year, and an addition of either is the perfect supplemental learning experience for your ZooED class!
Have the Kansas City Zoo come to you! Trained Zoo instructors will provide conservation education and interpretive activities in your classroom through the use of animal ambassadors and/or animal artifacts via a Zoomobile visit. Outreach visits may include animal biofacts, engaging science, interactive activities, captivating stories, books, or live animals.
Zoomobile programs may be delivered to individual classrooms or as an assembly for multiple. Subject to staff availability.
Suggested Zoomobile visit: We book up fast for Zoomobiles in the fall and spring, so consider having the Zoo visit your class in the winter!
As one of the best outdoor learning environments in the Kansas City area, a field trip to the zoo allows ZooED students the ability to see the animals they've learned about! Field trips are self guided and supplementary material are available in the Teacher Portal to enhance your visit.
