Wild Connections – LIVE from West Philly!
Join Philadelphia Zoo experts for a virtual experience, live from the Zoo! This 45-minute program connects your students with animals at the Zoo in our most up-close and personal program ever. Each program is presented to one classroom at a time, so your students will be able to interact with us one-on-one and ask as many questions as they like. In addition to your live program, we will provide you with a pre-lesson activity, a pre-written lesson for you to use, and a post-lesson activity that support the topic of your live program. Each piece of this experience is rooted in state and national curriculum standards and is designed to encourage students to develop problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills, and science literacy.
This program is currently available exclusively to Kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms in the Philadelphia School District and is provided at no cost (yes, it really is totally FREE!). Programs last approximately 45 minutes, including time for Q&A. Booking must occur at least two weeks in advance. Dates and times are extremely limited.
