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. Register for all five 2017-2018 homeschool series by September 21 for a 10 percent discount.

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.
