The Benefits of a Knoxville Zoo Pass

A Few Zoo Highlights -slide0
Emily L. Goodman

A Knoxville Zoo pass is an excellent addition to your homeschooling tools. Inexpensive and usable three hundred and sixty four days a year, a zoo pass takes your zoo-going experience from expensive to free each time you go. Instead of paying for the entire trip, you need only pay for gas and any food or souvenirs purchased while at the zoo--and if you take a picnic-style lunch, you need not worry about the food.
Most children learn better through hands-on activities that allow them to become engaged with their subject matter, and the zoo is definitely hands-on, up close, and personal. Not only can your students view the animals in their natural habitats, they can explore the zoo to its fullest, including a petting zoo, several water play areas, and plenty of chances to explore. There's a tube that your children can crawl through to see how prairie dogs live; a barn that contains not only real owls, but the opportunity for your child to pretend to be an owl; and plenty of other areas to explore.
Of course, no visit to the zoo in the hot, stifling summer months would be complete without a trip to the splash pad! Not only is there plenty of room for children of all ages to play (including safe places for little ones), there’s lots of wet, splashy fun that will help them cool off and get involved.
The zoo pass is well worth the financial investment, too. If you have three children and visit the zoo twice, poof! You’ve already paid for your pass. If this is an activity that you think you and your children will enjoy throughout the year, then it’s well worth the investment up front.
