Did You Know?
Magellanic penguins are named after Ferdinand Magellan who first discovered them in 1519.
For people unable to participate in The BIG Zoo Lesson week but want more than a one-hour tour or class visit, our Education Department has created the perfect compromise: a one-day extended learning class.
This program is perfect for teachers, other educators, and scout troops who want to spend a fun-filled day learning about wildlife. Structured to meet the needs of your school's curriculum and MEAP objectives, we offer teacher-designed programs on adaptations, food chains, and animal classifications. Looking for something specific, you can request that a program be tailored to meet your specific needs!
Included with this program is a two-hour, one-on-one planning session where teachers can meet with our Education Curator in a consultation designed to discover your needs and to make sure that the day-long program is everything you want it to be!
The cost for this intensive, full-day session is priced based on the program you design. Make arrangements for your program today by contacting Education Curator Dennis Laidler at (517) 342-2714.
