ZooChats are a creative solution for teachers that are short on time. Shorter in duration and more focused in scope than a ZooMobile presentation, ZooChats include a visit from one or two Animal Ambassadors, biofacts and high-quality nature interpretation. We can customize a ZooChat to most classroom topics.
ZooChats are a great way to introduce a life science topic, spark interest in a research or language arts project, or reward your students for a job well done.
Why you’ll love a ZooChat :
· Focused educational content provided by a professional zoo educator · Live Animal Ambassadors bring out the natural inquiry skills in each child · Tactile learning opportunities are introduced through the use of biofacts, such as skeletons or pelts
· Wide variety of topics and custom presentations available
