September 13th- As we move through the zoo we can see how the exhibits change to reflect where that animal might live in nature. In this class, we will use those observations to learn about the diversity of plants and animals in different habitats all over the world. (2-LS4-1)

October 11th- Wind and water are strong forces of change that can impact the Red River Valley. This class will focus on comparing solutions to slow or prevent disastrous changes from those remarkable forces. (2-ESS2-2) 

November 8th- Some animals in the animal kingdom work together to provide for their young, old, and all stages in between. In this class we will look at some such animals and why this helps the species survive. (3-LS2-1)
