Free Teacher Tuesdays coming to Louisville Zoo


The Louisville Zoo will host Free Teacher Tuesdays in July to allow teachers to explore the zoo and discover opportunities for student learning during the coming school year.

Teachers can engage in scientific discussions using the zoo’s newly designed exploration guides, identify phenomena to incorporate into plans for lessons teaching the Next Generation Science Standards and inquire about the zoo’s Next Generation Science Standards-aligned curriculum, field studies and outreaches.

Teachers will receive one free general admission ticket for any of these days:

  • July 9
  • July 16
  • July 23

Teachers also may register for educational program previews that are tailored to specific grade bands and allow teachers to experience what their students will experience. Teachers participating in the program preview sessions will be entered into a drawing for a behind-the-scenes tour of the zoo.
