If you can’t go to the zoo, the zoo will come to you! Each weekday, at 11 am (EDT), the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is presenting a Virtual Classroom experience using Facebook Live. From what I can tell, a couple of the previous experiences (meeting alpacas and bathing an elephant) are archived on the Facebook page. According to comments, requests have been made to also make them available somewhere else so that people who do not have Facebook can still view them. You can also find some archived videos along with lesson plans on this page.
The Cincinnati Zoo is also providing Facebook Live Safaris. These are happening at 3 PM (EDT) each weekday, but you can also access past videos along with suggested home activities on this page.
There are many more, but I’m trying not to overwhelm readers with too many resources in one post. Thanks to all of you out there who are keeping our students engaged during these tough times!
