This is an independent study written for students in 1st and 2nd grade who need an extension activity. I have used these with my first graders and they are able to complete the entire packet with minimal guidance from me.
In this study they will learn about jobs at the zoo and they will complete an application for one job. Students will choose an animal to study and then have a choice in their final project. They can design an animal exhibit or design a brochure for the zoo to use at the animal's exhibit.
Students will learn about zoos but then have to apply what they've learned in "real life" scenarios.
