School Programs and Field Trips

School Programs and Field Trips

Join us in our 37-acre living classroom! From programs that meet educational benchmarks to tips for bringing inquiry learning concepts into your classroom, our programs and resources are carefully designed to support you in your teaching efforts. Our school education programs, both onsite and off Zoo grounds, reach hundreds of schools and provide invaluable experiential learning opportunities to thousands of students every year.  Our programs are aligned with National Science Standards, Rhode Island Grade Span Expectations and Early Childhood Learning Standards. 

 

At the Zoo or in your classroom, our standards-based programs make for wild learning!
