Attention Teachers & Administrators! Blank Park Zoo is looking to build relationships with Central Iowa community school districts. We are introducing a new educational fund-raising program called “The Zoo & You” to educate elementary students about the importance of giving back to their communities and supporting a local cause. Classes and schools can participate in the following programs to fund-raise for the Zoo!
Pennies 4 Penguins: Grades K-3
Penguins 4 Pennies is a great way to engage younger students in the U.S. currency system and to teach them about counting change! Classes may compete in Penny Wars or individually collect coins and dollar bills for a set period of time.
Connecting Community: Grades 4-6
Connecting Community is a program where students participate in service projects in their local community and ask for donations to benefit the Blank Park Zoo. Projects can include raking leaves, mowing lawns, washing cars, shoveling snow or any other type of donated service.
To celebrate your fund-raising efforts, your class(es) will get to meet the animals you have supported!
Classroom Program – Free of Charge
Field Trip – Free of Charge
