Elephants! Bears! And Tigers! Oh, no! Oh, yes! Zoos are places where people can go to see all different kinds of animals. These animals come from all over the world and give us the chance to see them and learn about where they come from. Zoos are also places to help animals who are almost extinct. Zoos help animals while allowing people to see them in their natural environments. With our ideas, zoo-inspired crafts, activities, emergent reader booklets, educational games, and worksheets, your children can explore and learn about the animal kingdom. Samples of our more than 100 zoo crafts, zoo preschool activities, crafts, games, and zoo printables available in our KidsSoup Resource Library:

Who Lives in a Zoo?

Zoo Activities
Ask children if they have ever been to a zoo and what animals they saw. What were their favorites? Talk to children about the different habitats that animals need and how zoos have to make their surroundings seem real for the animals.

Learn facts and information about each zoo animal.

Pretend to be an animal at the zoo. Let children guess what zoo animal you are thinking of and give them hints. "The animal I'm thinking of is very tall, has four legs, and brown spots—a giraffe! Encourage children to act the animal out.

Walk and stomp like an elephant.
Gallop like a zebra.
Waddle like a penguin.
Dance like a monkey.
Roar like a lion.
Run like a cheetah.
Slither like a snake.
Jump like a kangaroo.

Five Little Monkeys Swinging in the Tree.

Gross motor skills: Pretend to be monkeys. Jump, sit, make funny faces, scratch your head, make monkey noises.

Rhyme:
Five Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor, and the doctor said,
"That's what you get for jumping on the bed!"

Repeat with four little monkeys, three little monkeys, etc.

Make a monkey finger puppet.

 

Preschool Monkey Fun
Ask children which animals look and sometimes act like humans? 

Talk about the Characteristics of Monkeys:
Monkeys are very good climbers. All monkeys can use their hands and feet for holding onto branches, but some monkeys can use their tails, too. Groups of monkeys are called troops and they travel together to find food. Monkeys eat flowers, fruits, nuts, leaves, seeds, insects, birds’ eggs, spiders, and small mammals.

Zoo Animals Crafts

Paper Plate Lion
Paint the top of a paper plate a brown/orange color. Let dry. Cut slits about 1-inch wide and 2 inches long all the way around the edge of the plate. “Fluff up” the lion’s mane by gently folding alternate strips up and down. Glue on pom poms for the cheeks (brown) and nose (red). Add whiskers by cutting pipe cleaners, each about 6 inches long. Put a generous amount of glue on one end of each pipe cleaner piece and poke 3 or 4 under the bottom side of each cheek. Hang up your lion or add a stick and turn him into a puppet
