Teacher's Guide

Dear Teacher: This is the Trevor Zoo Online Teacher’s Guide; it contains information about each animal you and your class will encounter on your visit to the zoo. For each of the exhibits or animal behaviors listed below, there is a downloadable version of the actual graphics displayed at the zoo. Feel free to download any of them to share with your class. It is our hope that by doing so, your students' visit to the Trevor Zoo will be that much more enhanced. If you develop any lesson plans, activities, or curricular plans for your class or group based on our Teacher’s Guide, please share them with us. Call 845-677-3704 or email trevorzoo@millbrook.org.
