About this Event
Alaska Eco EDventures for K-3 Homeschoolers

This program is geared towards homeschool students who are seeking to experience the culture, beauty, and ecology of Alaska’s great outdoors! Students will experience the unique natural and cultural heritage of Alaska through engaging cross-disciplinary lessons that combine arts, culture and outdoor play. Each EDventure will begin with a wildlife-themed lesson chosen by zoo educators as the month’s highlight. The program includes zoo trail explorations, outdoor scavenger hunts, animal encounters, science discoveries, hands-on projects and art-infused learning through literature and painting.

This program is designed to be for kids only, broken down to grades K-3rd and 4th-6th dates. While the students are in class, the rest of the family is welcome to tour the zoo! Neither parents nor younger siblings can sit in on classes. While students are in the program, one parent and one child (sibling) will receive free admission into the zoo to enjoy their own self-guided visit. Please see zoo educators for your pass when you check your student in for the program.
