My kindergartners are very interested in animals. This was a fun activity for them to explore. Each student receives their own "zoo ticket" and walks around the classroom to various centers, learning about different animals. Print the pages for the dolphins, elephants, anteaters, etc. and set them up around the room. I placed stuffed animals next to the print-outs. I even used iPads with previously selected videos for students to watch.
Student's "zoo tickets" can be held or can be hole-punched to hang around their neck. Great activity for pre-K, K, 1, & 2. Activity can be differentiated with reading abilities.
