The school year is winding down. The snow is melting and the flowers are blooming. What does that typically mean, you ask? A field trip to the ZOO, of course! It seems that almost every school in my neck of the woods has been making its way to the zoo over the past several weeks and I have no doubt that this will continue until the end of the school year. We counted 21 school buses when we were there last week, in fact!
Going to the zoo was one of my favorite field trips when I was a teacher and it has become one of my favorite things to do with my own kids. I thought since it is "zoo time" it would be fun to have a scavenger hunt for students to complete while they were on their field trip. This would be a great way to add some sort of structure to a crazy day and encourage some great discussions about the animals that they will be seeing.
What is great about this is that my three year old can complete it and your second grade student can complete it! And most importantly, both will think it is so much fun. I had my three year old color in the box of the animals we saw and school age students can easily check off which animal they have seen.
Molly loved it and was so proud of herself once it was completed.
So whether you are a teacher and going to the zoo on a field trip or a parent taking your kid(s) to the zoo, grab this FREEBIE now by clicking on the image below. I hope that you and your little ones enjoy it!
