Our education animals have a lot to say, and they want to tell your students! Our Pet Pen Pals program was designed to promote literary development, while bonding students with animals. The program allows each student to choose their own Pet Pen Pal from a variety of animals and write letters to them inquiring about their diet, habitat, adaptations, and more. Our animals will happily write responding letters back to the students and after four correspondences, your class will take a field trip to Helen Woodward Animal Center to meet their animal friends face to face!
Program Details: Each program includes four letter correspondences per child with the animal Pen Pal of their choice, a class field trip to the Center to meet their Pen Pal, and supporting cross curricular lessons for use in the classroom.
Program Cost: $400 per class (up to 30 students per class)
