Online Wildlife Adventures

While zoos and museums are closed, many institutions are sharing online lessons and activities that will allow students to learn more about wildlife. On offer from these incredible zoos and aquariums are online safaris, webcams where students can observe natural behaviors of animals, and various professionals sharing their knowledge about featured animals.

You can even incorporate these lessons into your homeschooling practice! After watching these videos, students can: write down a few things they learned or observed, come up with a few questions for further exploration, or research 3 additional facts about the animals.

You can find a comprehensive list of online resources below:

  • The Cincinnati Zoo is offering a “Home Safari” on Facebook Live everyday at 3:00 pm. If you don’t have access to Facebook, you can also view the videos on the zoo’s website - https://bit.ly/3dlzImF
