Home School Day
October 8, 2013
Home School families, come spend a day at the Minnesota Zoo!
All in a day’s work! Taking care of the animal collection is much more than using a shovel. The animals depend on our training in math, science, and engineering to keep them alive and well. Come experience a piece of our daily work as our education staff guide you through activity stations based around this theme. Then enjoy the rest of your day with other Home School families seeing the remainder of the Zoo.
Highlights of the day include:
Educational activity stations
Interactive Game Show
World of Birds Show
More information will be sent in early October to families who have registered.
