Students, parents, and teachers use Potter Park Zoo as their classroom for a week-long, in-depth study of biological sciences. They talk with wildlife experts, observe animal behaviors, and research animals from all over the world. The BIG Zoo Lesson is an interdisciplinary, problem-based approach to teaching and learning. Today’s children are the future stewards of zoos and the greater world. The BIG Zoo Lesson offers them the opportunity to learn about animals, careers, and their role in conserving the world’s natural treasures.
