Teacher Resources

From scavenger hunts for a self-guided field trip to classroom activities that will enrich your classroom curriculum, the Zoo has a variety of resources for you.  All resources are developed by grade(s) and are aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence. 

Are you coming to the Zoo for a self-guided experience?  Use our Explore Guides, which will direct your students’ self-guided exploration of the Zoo.  If your class is coming for a Zoo Challenge program, you can utilize the Challenge Guides to enhance the experience.  Each Guide has specific pre-and-post-lessons that directly link with the specific Zoo Challenge program your students will enjoy when they come to the Zoo.  Perhaps the Zoo is coming to you, or if you are looking for some additional classroom resources, use the Zoo Connection Lessons to enhance your classroom learning.  These lessons are designed to align with standards and provide a hands-on learning experience.
