Global Folk-Tails: Advanced

Global Folk-Tails is the final series in the 2017-2018 Zoo Homeschool curriculum exploring global biomes. Each series is a detailed exploration of a different major global biome, the ecosystems that define it and the animals that make it their home. Students may register for individual series or for the entire curriculum. 

Global Folk-Tails: Fables and folktales from around the world provide clever explanations for some amazing animal adaptations. In our final series of the 2017-2018 curriculum, we will travel around the globe to touch on the biomes we haven't yet explored through a different animal "folk-tail" each week as we learn about animals and the real stories behind their fabled features. Class will meet once a week for six weeks.

There will be no class on Thursday, May 17.

Global Folk-Tails: Advanced is a drop-off only program. Advanced courses cover the same themes and concepts as Primary courses, but include more detail, longer discussions and higher-level experiments and activities.
