Figure It Out

The last thing that I want you to do is to take everything that you have learned about the animals that live all around you and create your own zoo! You can be as creative as you want with this. If you go to http://www.sandiegozoo.org/kids/readaboutit_build_a_zoo.html it will give tips and professional hints into how to plan and organize a zoo. Your zoo should include:


1. A list of all the animals in the zoo. The list should include where the animal is from, what they eat, and an interesting fact about them. There should be at least 20 animals in the zoo. Try to only put animals in the zoo that you have learned about in this adventure. Once you have 20 animals then you can put as many other animals as you want from other parts of the world.


2. A drawing or plan of the zoo. Try to organize your animals in the same way that a real zoo would. Put birds with birds, reptiles with other reptiles, and make sure that an animal is not in the same area as its predator. (Deer and bears in the same cage would be a bad idea.)


3. Descriptions of the different employees that the zoo will need. What employees are necessary for a zoo to work? How many of each do you need? What will they do?


4. A list of the food that will be needed for the animals. Make sure the animals are all healthy and have a balanced diet.


5. A mission statement or purpose for your zoo. Why is the zoo important?
