Are there any zookeepers in here? I've just recently started an online course to become a qualified zookeeper and it would be great to get to know any other zookeepers

cheers

Some game ideas if you are working with kids as part of the zoo’s educational programme.
Animal Features- you have to name a zoo animal and describe it in ten words only.
Quiz type game- you can use up to ten wild animals as the fodder for this game
Colours of zoo animals- correctly say the colour of the zoo or wild animal etc
Animal Charades- each of the children have to act like one of the zoo animals
Drawing Animals- the group have to draw one zoo animal each on a sheet of paper
Zoo facts- the whole class must accurately tell you one zoo fact each time you ask
Animal names- the entire class must guess the real name of the animal in question from clues

You could invent big crosswords based on the animals. Alternatively you could get the children to complete a small word search based on the zoo animals. Another option is to prepare a picture puzzle of the zoo animals. Fourth option is to create lessons based on the zoo animals for starters a entire literature lesson. You could even have older groups of kids write a description type essay on types of zoos or have a lively educational discussion on animals. Other good activities include making up animal dances, animal poems and thank you letters to the zoo staff as well.
