This emergent reader is a wonderful booklet to do before or after your zoo field trip, as most of the letters are associated with an animal. When students get back read the booklet and discuss which animals the children saw. This FREEBIE is part of my large "Wild About The Alphabet Packet". For your convenience, I've included a preview.
If you don't have a zoo near you, or there's no budget or time for your kiddos to visit a real zoo, why not take them on a virtual fieldtrip? I researched zoo websites to find the best virtual experience for your students and listed 8 of my favorites. All of them are kid-friendly, many have live animal cams, videos, and games. All of them contain a plethora of pictures and information suitable for animal reports.
