May STEM in the CITY
3001 Connecticut Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20008
Transit: Red Metro Line to Woodley Park
Ways to Engage
Choose at least one to do with your family
or come up with your own!
On your zoo visit, each person select 1 animal. Discuss together what parts your animal has that help it survive. Then compare how your animal parts are the same or different.
Want an extra challenge? Bring along paper and drawing tools. Create a new animal that combines parts from each of the animals your family chose!
Time your visit with an animal demonstration. This is a great way to learn more about an animal of interest and ask questions!
As you walk throughout the zoo see if you can find animals from these 5 different environments:
Desert, rainforest, plains, river, mountains
Look closely in each animal’s exhibit. How are they getting their needs met?
Engage from home
