Zoo New England offers a variety of age-appropriate educational programming for home schooled students ages 6-10. Classes are offered at both Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo.
Taught by Zoo educators, classes include hands-on activities, discussion, animal encounters and behind-the-scenes experiences. Each semester includes progressive program topics focused on teaching students about animals and their interactions within their ecosystems.
Virtual classes are a fantastic way to bring PUDDLESTOMPERS programming into your life without leaving your home. The class will consist of a pre-recorded lesson with all 3 of our fabulous teacher naturalists Sara, Bre, and Melissa. Our teachers will lead the class through a virtual circle time about a spring time topic! We will then head outside for an interactive outdoor exploration where your children will be able to follow along with what we do both in their own explorations or following along with the video. After the exploration the teacher will then read a story based on our seasonal theme. Every participant will get an STEM activity sheet, an outdoor activity, a coloring sheet, and a handout to extend the learning!
The Edgerton Center Outreach Program works with school groups, homeschoolers, summer programs and many other groups in the greater Boston area and beyond.
