Zoo Explorers

The Zoo Explorer program is funded by a 21st Century Learning Grant for 120 students (K-6th grades) from 15 selected Title 1 schools. The Zoo visits each school once within the school year and does three hands-on interactive stations with the students. The program has three major goals including: improving FCAT performance and overall physical fitness of students, and improving literacy level of family members and caregivers. At the school sites, students receive after-school homework coaching and engage in fitness activities 4 out of 5 days a week. Family members and caregivers may choose to attend adult education and English language classes at the schools also. Students have the opportunity to come to the Zoo several times a year. Children are immersed in hands-on activities dealing with animals and their environment. These educational activities slip in science and math skills as well.
