Activities and Guides

Zoo Atlanta worked with classroom teachers to design a variety of activity packets and planning guides to help align your visit with educational standards. The Field Trip Guides include Georgia Performance Standards, rubrics for each grade level, as well as activities to conduct with your students before, during and after your visit. Utilize our Activity Packets for additional activities to use in the classroom before and after your visit.
