Second Grade: Two to the Zoo

Second Grade: 
Two to the Zoo

North American river otter photoYour second graders have just been hired as Zoo Keepers. What will their new job entail? Students will learn the ropes of being an animal keeper as they rotate through different learning stations throughout the Zoo. They will compare and contrast the basic needs as they meet animals up close in our classroom. While on tour they will discover that living things are found all over the Earth, but each is only able to live in habitats that meet its basic needs. As Zoo Keepers for the day, students will make enrichments for some special animals and learn what it takes to keep our animals healthy and happy.
