Are you a regular zoo goer looking for new ideas to keep your visits exciting? Or are you completing a Zoo unit and looking for an additional activity for your unit?
Take your children on a scavenger hunt to turn an ordinary zoo outing into an adventure as your children look for specific animals or animal characteristics.
Plus it’s fun for the kids to mark down the animals they find as they go along, because really, who doesn’t like checking off boxes to complete a list?!
Here is how simple it is: scroll down and click the link for the printable, print the checklists, decide which scavenger hunt you want to complete with your children, head to the zoo, look for the animals and mark as you go!
I’ve included three different checklists to include a variety of animals and one that is focused on animal actions rather than the type of animal. You decide which one works best for your family and is most appropriate for the zoo you are visiting.
Here are some photos from our recent zoo trip to get you excited for your own visit!
(Please note: The Zoo Scavenger Hunt printable has been updated from the one in the photo to include check boxes as well as a few other changes).
So much fun! Yay!
