Head, Shoulders, Knees and Tails

There’s "nose" doubt about it, animals have some pretty amazing adaptations to survive in the wild. Some parts of their bodies are a lot like ours, but others might seem very silly! Get ready to wiggle, squiggle, move and groove as we explore animal tails, paws, whiskers and wings.

FONZ preschool classes are designed for children ages 2 to 3 to discover a whole new view of the Smithsonian's National Zoo.  “Adult-and-me” format classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, and exciting Zoo walks to engage your child’s sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world.

Note: FONZ preschool classes are for children and their adult buddies to enjoy together.
