Global Safari: Grades 2-3

Friends of the National Zoo and Smithsonian Associates Adventures invite you to explore the globe from home. Grab your binoculars and journal as you discover the animals, art, culture, history, or geography of a continent or region. Each week, virtually travel to the Zoo and a different Smithsonian museum to learn through object investigation, games and activities.

In this multi-week program, students take a deep dive into the Smithsonian’s collections to engage with unique content that focuses on the natural sciences, American democracy, art and other fascinating topics. Sessions include virtual visits to museums, hands-on projects, games and challenges, and conversations with experts — all facilitated during two hours of live interaction by a team of experienced instructors from across the Smithsonian. Each Adventure is offered in two grade-appropriate versions.

Please note that this listing is for students in grades 2 and 3. See the listing for grades 4 and 5.

This class is offered as a joint program between FONZ and Smithsonian Associates.
