Brookfield Zoo has developed many tools to assist educators in sharing information about animals, science, and caring - the things that form the basis of conservation at the zoo and in the wild. We encourage educators to use the information gathered by the zoo to share concepts about data gathering and scientific research, and to use the zoo's charismatic animals to help inspire excitement for learning.
Bring your class to Brookfield Zoo--or let us come to you—to experience hands-on learning utilizing artifacts and biofacts during a Connections Class or Zoo Talk.
