Jungle Island says to Stay in Your Shell. Starting Monday, March 23, Miami’s premier eco-adventure park and events destination will introduce new virtual online learning opportunities for kids’ ages 5 to 12 years old.
Simply visit the park’s Facebook or Instagram pages at 11 a.m. each weekday (Monday-Friday), and Jungle Island’s Education Manager Emma Guss will post cool photos and a weblink to where kiddos and parents can locate the lesson of the day. Look out for new themes every week, ranging from Everglades Exploration, Spread Your Wings, Primate Practices and more. Guss will lead the virtual learning exercises and has designated Tuesdays and Thursdays as “homework” days.
“While schools are closed and kids are bored and stuck at home, we decided to bring some of Jungle Island’s fine-feathered, scaly and cuddly friends directly to the computers of our young fans,” says Guss, who has an environmental science teaching background. “Each assignment is full of surprises and is designed to keep kids’ busy for hours, while they discover fun facts about animals, protected national parks, and the crucial role they can play in conserving wildlife and endangered species.”
During the fun educational lessons, youngsters will have the opportunity to virtually meet Señor Jefe, a popular Andean condor at Jungle Island; Mama Cass, the only tame cassowary on the planet; Luna the rambunctious black-and-white ruffed lemur; Rocco, an adorable and very mischievous capuchin monkey, to name a few. Children will get to explore the marshy wetlands of the Everglades and the wildlife that call it home. Best of all, participants will receive updates on what Jungle Island’s beloved animals are up to while the attraction is temporarily closed to park patrons in support of worldwide efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
For nearly 85-years, Jungle Island has proudly provided educational programs and tools for teachers to bring back to the classroom, and now virtual learning assignments that students can do at home. Thousands of teachers and students visit Jungle Island annually through field trips, camps or general admission tickets donated to underprivileged children. From inspiring field trips and overnight expeditions that encourage interest in nature and wildlife discovery to unique teacher professional development, STEM education and outreach programs, Jungle Island is a valuable resource for interactive and sensory-based learning.
