Homeschool Days

Homeschool Days

Join us for Nashville Zoo’s Homeschool Days!

These engaging programs encourage home school students to learn about the importance of conservation by exploring the world of animals. These are both enjoyable and educational programs that feature live animal presentations, hands-on activities, animal artifacts and an activity out on the Zoo trail (weather permitting) that will help students make connections between the lesson content and Nashville Zoo animals.

Each class is designed to meet the needs of the specified age groups, for this reason we ask that you register your children in their correct grade levels. Neither younger siblings or parents are allowed to sit-in on programs. Parents and other children are welcome to purchase admission or use their membership to tour the Zoo while your student is in class. Your child need only register for one class per month, we offer two days of programming simply to provide parents with flexibility in scheduling their child's class day at the Zoo.
