It's A Zoo In Here!

For the past two weeks we have been BUSY with our zoo unit!  Most of the ideas below are from Deanna Jump's Awesome Zoo Unit!

 Each day we focused on a different zoo animal.  We made bubble maps for many of these animals, completed an art project, and then wrote about them!

Last year, I found this gorilla measurement activity in Blogland.  Unfortunately, I cannot relocate the source!

Using diecut shapes, we created a cage for our animals and then wrote some facts about them.

These monkeys are again from Mrs. Jump's tpt store.  The link is above.
This is not a great picture, but I always, turn our room into a jungle like atmosphere.  They love the vines hanging form the ceiling.  Then, we add snakes, monkeys, and butterflies!

Here are some of the station that we have going on in our room right now!

Zoo animal tangrams and pattern blocks!

Zoo animal puzzles. I just love the giraffe!  It is a life size baby giraffe puzzle that used to my own children's.  I got it on clearance from Lakeshore Learning.

 Using zoo animal stamps, they stamp with paint and then label them. 

*A few more ideas that are not pictured include:
-They brought in their favorite stuffed zoo animal.  They then wrote about what their zoo animal did at school.  I then took their picture of them wearing a safari hat with their animal.  I used the picture and writing to make a page for their  Kindergarten Scrapbook!
*I gave each child a zoo animal grow capsule.  Using an inference page, much like the one from Deanna Jump's Dinosaur Pack, they made inferences about what was inside.  Then, they each got a cup of water to place their capsule in to find out what was really inside. They LOVED it!



I love the writing with the animals in cages! So cute!
