Activities and Lessons to do with your Kids

We’re here to help parents and teachers as we enter this unusual school year!  Below you will find links to our activity book, post-visit packets, lessons that can be done at home or in the classroom, activity sheets you can do at the zoo and tons of other educational materials.  You will also see a link to our Square store where you can purchase our Discover Virginia activity booklet for 3-5 year olds (the 6-8 year old booklet will be coming soon).  This booklet is full of activities to do outdoors with your children to teach them about nature and science.  These booklets can also be purchased in the zoo’s Gift Shop.
