Field Trips: Zoo Challenge

Engage, explore, explain! Enhance your field trip to the Zoo by signing-up for a Zoo Challenge program led by Zoo Atlanta Educators. Support your classroom curriculum for Pre-K to 12th grade students with real-world explorations that connect students to issues affecting wildlife and wild places.

Students will learn about animals, wildlife conservation, and research at Zoo Atlanta as we integrate the Georgia Standards of Excellence Science Standards and STEM through activities, animal ambassador encounters, and Zoo exploration. From biodiversity to basic needs, we have a program that best fits your curriculum, your students, and your context!

Take a trip to the Zoo without getting on a bus! Check out our Virtual Zoo Challenge program, where students will take a live virtual tour of Zoo Atlanta hosted by a Zoo Educator.
