Zoo Class and Camp Ideas


Created by araminty, last updated 2015-11-13

I'm collecting ideas for upcoming camps and classes. Spring Break camp is called Animal Detectives; I'll be teaching a rainforest themed class in the summer, as well as Junior Zoo Vets.

Makin' Tracks

Great write up for an activity we use a lot.

Scent Tracking

Neat! I'll try it for Spring Break camp. I think I'll use vanilla extract for one scent, and vinegar for another.

Animal Clues

I like this for younger kids to reinforce the other tracking activites we're doing. We'll set up the laptop and projector so we can do it as a group.

Saldo Island: An Unfair Game

Might be a bit complicated. I like the way each species is given a made-up name, and you can ask the kids later to think of real-life animals that they might be representing.

Cutify: What Makes for Cute?

Anthropomorphism, pets - maybe better for older kids, challenging assumptions, etc.
