Zoo School Wednesday

The Akron Zoo has a great homeschool program called Zoo School Wednesdays.  They are once a month for two hours and feature a different theme each session.  This month we attended “Unlovables”, which focused on creatures like the sea cucumber, turkey vulture, and hissing cockroach.
