After morning circle, we read Z is for Zookeeper (Smith), a similar book to A is for Art History. Can be a quick read or you can read the side passages on each page if time allows. As always, beautiful pictures!
Then it was time for worksheets so we could head out to the zoo!
I was able to find a great Zookeeper packet on TPT and as it serviced two age groups, it was well worth the $5 download price (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Zoo-Animal-Inquiry-Pack-246999).
We rushed in a quick snack of animal crackers (Barbara’s bakery makes YUMMY organic animal crackers in assorted flavors).
If we had allocated more time for snack-here is a photo roundup of some amazing ZOO snack ideas I would have loved to create.
We headed off to the zoo after snack with a packed lunch, tons of energy and a desire to see every animal possible! 🙂
The Zoo never ceases to amaze me!
