Home-school Classes

To contain the spread of COVID-19, all Winter 2020-2021 home-school and after-school classes will be virtual.

Calling all animal lovers in grades 2-5! This winter, FONZ will partner with Smithsonian Associates to offer home-school/after-school virtual adventures! Each five-week session will take students on an amazing learning journey that connects the animals of the Smithsonian's National Zoo to the other treasures of the Smithsonian through themes such as art, music and the natural sciences. 

Classes will be split into two grade-specific listings: one for children in grades 2 and 3, and one for children in grades 4 and 5. Students will access grade-specific content like STEM activities, movement games and challenges, and exclusive animal videos. Weekly live lessons will be broadcast from across the Smithsonian and feature grade-specific breakout sessions to build on weekly lessons.

Check back for more about these exciting new programs soon!
