Classrooms that Care is a two-part K-12th 12th grade structured education program that brings the world of chimpanzees to your classroom. During an initial classroom visit, students will have the opportunity to learn about chimpanzees and the African rainforests; witness the consequences of our planet’s diminishing resources; discover their special link in the food chain; and explore the world of science. The outdoor laboratory portion of the program provides an exciting opportunity for firsthand observations of the chimpanzees that call Chimp Haven home, while enhancing and reinforcing the classroom teaching content.
The Classrooms that Care program is designed to reinforce the skills and concepts that students are learning in the classroom and to satisfy curriculum guidelines for grades K-12.
Outdoor Laboratories include three separate themes to choose from. Classrooms may choose which theme they would like to explore during their visit to Chimp Haven.
