Zoo Scavenger Hunt & Wild Animal Activities

Are you a big fan of zoo visits?  We love going to observe the animals and see their funny (and interesting) antics and activities. 

This week, we're highlighting (and asking you to share!) ideas for Zoo Visits & Wild Animal Activities on the Discover & Explore linky.

My kids always find something new and intriguing on our zoo visits.  Sometimes we'll notice the way an animal moves, what they are eating or how they might be looking at us as much as we're looking at them.  Zoos are wonderful for kids because they allow for some fun science observation and classification discussions. 

Are bears and kangaroos related?  What do they have in common and what might be different?

And what about all the birds you see at the aviary -- can they all fly? 

I love all the questions that arise as we observe the animals.

Here are a few fun ideas to encourage questions and observations on your next zoo visit:

I love scavenger hunts, and I appreciate the thought required for yours, Jacquie. Thanks so much for sharing your free printables! I featured your scavenger hunt as the Free Printable of the Day at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page and on Pinterest.
