For grades Pre K-- 5. This workshop explores the variety of adaptations that exist in the animal kingdom. Attention will be paid to physical features, as well as physiological and behavioral adaptations, that enable animals to exist in harsh environments, survive on a variety of foods, and to occupy many unusual ecological niches. Students will observe zoo animals and interact with zoo staff as well as participate in classroom and focused field trip activities designed for use with diverse learners.
Antlers and horns, prehensile trunks and tails, feet that make footprints large enough for a kindergartner to sit inside: animals have amazing adaptations! Observe Brookfield Zoo animals and learn about nature’s clever structures and the animals that posses them. Take away activities, information and close up pictures of animal features.
Please bring a sack lunch each day of the workshop. Upon registration, maps & driving directions will be e-mailed to participants.
Fri., 5/9, 4:30 PM—10:00PM at Brookfield Zoo
