Animals of All Kinds

Homeschool Program 2019-2020

Learn about the wide variety of animals on our planet by exploring some of the major animal groups. From reptiles and amphibians to mammals and birds, we will find out what makes every animal unique! This is a three-season program starting in September and running through mid-May. Each month will focus on a different taxonomy group. Toledo Zoo’s Homeschool Program is a fun way to learn life science through group activities, live animals and Zoo visits! Program participants will be divided by age group.

This year-long program includes the September Open House, monthly classes from October-April (beginning on the second Wed. of each month) and the May Project Fair. Single class packages not available.

Program Fee: $90 per child for members, $120 per child for non-members
