Whether your class is taking a field trip to the local zoo, or if you simply use this scavenger hunt as a means of building animal vocabulary, this zoo animal scavenger hunt is a great supplement to your zoo unit! I also like to use scavenger hunts in literacy centers with a pile of relevant picture books or magazines.
The Build a Zoo Habitat Project is a fun way to teach your students about animal habitats using a project-based learning approach. During this project, your students become Habitat Creators for a local zoo. They will pretend that a local zoo has contacted them to design a habitat for one of their animals.
