Zoo Boise Hosting Homeschool Zoo!
As I was scrolling through Facebook today looking at stupid political arguments and other ridiculous stuff I finally stumbled onto something that I think sounds very interesting. It's an event going on tomorrow and quite a few other Wednesday's coming up at Zoo Boise from 9 a.m. to Noon.
Here are the details straight from their Facebook event page:
The Homeschool Zoo program series provides a unique learning experience for students schooled at home. The course consists of classroom discussion, laboratory activities, animal encounters and specialized zoo tours. Classes will align with Idaho State Science Standards and focus on topics and principles based on grade level. Themes will emphasize looking at animal groups and taxonomy, adaptations, habitats, and ecology. Each individual household must register their child for the class. Kids only! Please bring a small snack for a 15 minute break during class.
And here are the different programs being offered for the kids in different age brackets.
All programs are on Wednesdays from 9:00am – 12:00pm. Cost per student, per class is $15.
