This week we got to meet Aunt Jenny and Cousin Christopher at the zoo, what a special treat.  We were very pumped about seeing the animals, but as it turns out, there were numerous other exciting things we saw.  I took some pictures of the actual animals too, the kids requested I do that, we are going to use them to make a going to the zoo book and write facts about the animals as we go the next time.  It will be a work in progress, but it will be something like this:

Animal’s Name:

I eat_____________

I live____________

I weigh__________

Here is a picture of me (have my kids draw a picture of it when we return home).

We have also done zoo maps.  I found this idea through lets-explore.net if you go to the website and search zoo maps it will come up.  Basically we take the map from the zoo and talk about directions, a key, all the different animals, and then they make their own maps.  Super fun.
