Where Learning Gets Wild! 

You can explore the animal world at the Zoo with your “little critter” through activities based on Arizona’s Early Learning Standards to develop motor, social, and cognitive skills. Each program includes animal ambassador encounters, crafts, and more!  Advance registration is required. 

This Month’s Topic: Animal Shapes

Have fun as you and your child go on an Educator-led tour of the Zoo! We will practice identifying basic shapes in nature as we visit a variety of Zoo animals. What shapes do giraffes wear on their fur? What shape do tortoises carry on their backs?  We’ll compare shapes big and small, then get creative and use familiar shapes to build our own animals. Zoo Educators will introduce LIVE animal ambassadors and teach you and your child how their shapes help them every day.
