Teachers often consider a field trip to a zoo as a great way for students to observe animals and feel a connection with wildlife. Our programs align with Oklahoma Department of Education Academic Content Standards at primary and secondary levels. It's important for teachers to be certain of the educational goals of such a trip such as locality or origin of study, conservation efforts, dietary needs or just about anything your lesson plan consists of to ensure that the experience will meet those objectives.
What should I bring to a zoo field trip?
Here is a handy checklist of things you may want to bring with you and items you cannot bring into the zoo:
Comfortable Shoes. We strongly suggest wearing shoes that are comfortable to walk in
Camera and Film/Batteries
Sunscreen, Sunglasses, Hat/Insect Repellant
Can you take food into Tiger Safari Zoological Park?
You can bring food items in, large coolers are brought to many of our pavilions
by staff for your convenience. You'll find picnic areas to meet your classes needs all over the zoo so get excited for a great day of fun and learning. It's hot and sunny at the zoo much of the year so don't forget to bring hats and sunscreen!
