Zoo Animal Reports

There are several ways to use this activity with your children. Some suggestions are:

- Take a copy (or several copies) to your next zoo trip. Have kids choose an animal and fill the report based on what they learned at the zoo by observing the animal, reading the graphics and/or talking to zookeepers;

- Extend your zoo trip fun at home by having kids fill reports based on what they learned after a trip to the zoo; 

- Watch one of our Zookeeper talks on Facebook and have kids fill out the report based on what it was learned. 

- Research different species on our website and fill out reports based on the information you learned.
