Either before or after traveling on your Zoo Field Trip this year, complete the activities in this Jr. Zoo Keeper Unit! You and your young learners will just love participating in the hands-on, engaging, and exploratory activities included. There are opportunities to practice math (graphing, surveying), ELA (making words, journal prompts) and social skills (job application.) Topics throughout the unit focus on being a Zoo Keeper, Animals, and the Zoo. At the completion of all the activities, they'll become official Jr. Zoo Keepers, complete with badges/necklaces, headbands, and certificates. As a bonus, I've added a Bulletin Board Kit with glitter animal skin paper letters and a Jr. Zoo Keeper Craftivity to go with it! This is really an all-in-one opportunity for learning!
