We Care

For students entering 1st - 3rd grade

Are there things that you need to survive? Who helps you get what you need? In this class, we will look at how animals are cared for as pets, in the wild, and at the Saint Louis Zoo. Our "Missouri Tree" will help us discover the care that trees provide for animals, each one of us, and people in our neighborhoods.

Limited to 16 students per session.
