Spend a Homeschool Day at the Nashville Zoo

Learning can happen anywhere and that includes the Nashville Zoo, which has created Homeschool Days just for you. There is more to see and do than visit with the animals. Although that is a lot of fun, children can also participate in a number of programs that are offered to homeschoolers. They are educational and fun and children, ages five to 14 years old, will enjoy them. 

Going Green
It is still fashionable and wise to “go green”. Students will learn about their personal impact on the environment with the choices they make. They will also learn ways to live a greener lifestyle and possibly be motivated to make some changes in that direction. This program is offered
August 17 and 18.

Animal University
Has your child ever dreamed of being an animal trainer? Well, this session is just right for them. Techniques used by animal trainers will be discussed and children will learn how those techniques are used in the daily care of the animals at the Nashville Zoo. This program is offered September 21 and 22. 

The Scoop on Poop
As previously stated, learning can happen anywhere as well as from many things and that includes poop. A lot of poop can be found at the Nashville Zoo. Students will learn how studying poop can undercover a lot of detail (ex: “behavior, their diet and what they might look like”) about an animal. This program is offered November 16 and 17.

Each program is offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays and has three sessions:
Session 1: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for children, ages five to six years old.
Session 2: 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for children, ages seven to nine years old.
Session 3: 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. for children , ages 10 to 14 years old.

Registration is now open with a fee of $6 for members and $13 for non-members for each session. You may register your children for one, two or all three of the programs. If needed, e-mail education@nashvillezoo.org or call (615) 833-1534, extension 160 the Nashville Zoo for more information.
