Utah’s Hogle Zoo’s Zoo Just for You programming has been developed specifically for students with special needs. Live animals, photographs, skull models, pelts, animal figures and more are used to engage students and demonstrate concepts. Our program utilizes a sensory motor approach where students move between stations and are encouraged to touch, smell and feel all appropriate items. The program can be geared towards students of any age and functioning level. The animal families discussed include insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
