You at the Zoo

Much like our Zoo to You program, this 30 minute on-site presentation provides students the opportunity to meet two live animals while exploring a conservation-based theme.  What is the difference between a frog and a toad??  Are we predators, or are we prey?  How does our behavior in Kansas affect animals in Africa?  These are the types of questions this program will answer.  These classes are a great addition to school field trips. Prices are $40 for the first program and $30 for each additional program.  Preferred class size is 25 or less.  


Personal Guided Tour

These hour-long tours will be guided by an experience zoo staff member.  During the tour, three stops will be made at Apes, Rhinos and Giraffes – where the tour guide will speak at length about conservation, animal facts and their personal histories.  Maximum group size for each tour is 35. Prices are $50 for the first tour and $40 for each additional tour.  


Self-Guided Tour

Teachers can request an informational zoo packet containing exhibit and animal information, park facts and a map for $15 so they can do their own self-guided tour.  For an additional $10, teachers will be provided with a customized packet that includes pre and post lessons relating to one of the following content areas:  Language Arts, Math, Science, Art, and Geography.  Customized lessons are designed for grades 3-5.  Any additional content area is an additional $5.
