SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAMSThe Louisville Zoo will bring an educational program to your school. Through minds-on/hands-on classes, we will help your students experience the fascinating world of nature. Programs can be designed for pre-school through high school aged students.
A few animals will join our Zoo educators during the outreach to increase student participation and interest allowing for a special time of wonder and discovery.
Choose one of the programs below or work with our MetaZoo Education staff to design a program to meet your needs. Classroom-sized groups only. No assemblies please.
Educators will work to meet your individual curriculum needs.
A fun, informative presentation containing basic animal information. Great for introductory units for young children!

Creepy Crawlers (Pre-School Grade 5)
Children will discover that insects, spiders and snakes are not so bad after all.
