After School

Blank Park Zoo’s after school programming can provide a lot of different, fun, and educational activities to the After School 1students in your after school programs.

 

After School Sessions

With live animals, crafts, games, and activities the zoo can build your students knowledge of subjects like what animals eat, how they move,  how zoos care for them, and even what things are going on in our own backyards! Book sessions in 4, 6, or 8 week periods. Each week we will build on previous lessons so groups should consist of the same students throughout the sessions.

Ages: K-12

Audience size: 15 students and one staff member from your school.

Length: 1 hour

Price: $85/session if booked in 4, 6, or 8 week sessions.

 

Service Project (One Time Visit)After School 2

There’s more to a zoo than picking up poo! Service projects teach students what goes into keeping an animal happy and healthy!

Prior to the service project students will gather recyclable household items like cereal boxes, toilet paper tubes, newspaper, etc to make the enrichment items out of.

Ages: K-12

Length: 45-60 minutes

Price: $50
