Toronto Zoo Virtual Classroom

Our Toronto Zoo Virtual Classroom is filled with super fun child-friendly learning resources all about animals.  To keep students safe, all YouTube videos are linked through SafeShare which removes advertisements and suggested videos.

About the Event

Come with us on a virtual adventure to the Toronto Zoo, where we’ll meet the animals of the African Savanna.

We’ll be guided by an animal expert at the Zoo, where we’ll see and learn about fascinating animals like the Masai Giraffe, African Lion, Cheetah, White Rhino and more!

This Virtual Field Trip includes a tour of the African Savanna at the Toronto Zoo, a question and answer period with the Zoo’s animal expert, and valuable resources to continue the learning after our trip!
