School will be back in session soon, and the afternoon is usually a great, low-traffic time for homeschoolers to visit the zoo! You can spend an entire week (or more!) learning about the zoo with Homeschool Share’s unit study and lapbook.
Here are some optional extras to add even more educational opportunities for you!
