Fourth & Fifth Grade: ZooLab

Animal Trackers - Fourth Grade

Clouded leopard photoDuring this interactive fourth grade program students will travel behind the scenes and out into the Zoo on an exciting journey into the processes of life! ZooLab is where they will meet live animals up close as they study how energy from the sun is transferred along the food chain and how animal behaviors are shaped by heredity and learning and how energy travels the food chain. They will interact with our giant Earth ball to discover how the Earth, Moon and Sun revolve and the importance of our planet's resources. From giraffes to rhinos, bears to cheetahs, students will go in search of biomes found around the world and the animals that live there.
