This zoo adapted book, "We Went to the Zoo," brings the zoo to life with real photos. It teaches basic reading skills, zoo animal vocabulary, and includes real photos of animals that might be at a zoo.
A teacher or therapist reads the book, as students follow along, matching a photo and word to each page. This book includes two levels of matching: words with pictures, and just words so that students may work at their level. After the book has been introduced, students working independently may practice the book in a workstation or literacy center.
If your students enjoy this activity they may also enjoy other hands-on activities that use real photos. Please see those activities below:
