My Zoo Trip

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu
I finally went to the ZOOOOOOOOOO! I absolutely LOVE the zoo...! I know, it's not nice to have animals all caged up - but I still love the zoo. I'm sharing a few of my favorite pics from the day as well as an 'assignment' for kids - but don't call it that when you give it to them. It's a scavenger hunt to them!
The 'Canadian Domain' takes forever to get to, but it's SO worth the walk. How often do YOU get to see grizzly bears! .. better than UFC *grin*
There are peacocks walking all around, but this guy decided to put on a little show!
Polar bear at feeding time. Polar bears are just too cool, even when they are lazing around being bums!
And here is the 'scavenger hunt'. My nephews did it (ages 7 & 8). It wasn't too difficult for them but once at home you could tell they remembered a lot more about each animal, and enjoyed themselves.
Your child will need a digital camera, this list and maybe a pencil to check off what they find. Don't help them once there.. but make sure you've covered the words in previous lessons. The idea is to get pictures of as many as they can...no pressure, let them enjoy the trip!
