Eli's Zoo Animal Study

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Friday, August 17, 2012 at 11:46 AM

The past two weeks Eli has been studying various animals in his Science curriculum.

Added to his curriculum I have had him do research on the National Geographic for Kids site, on each of the animals that he has studied.  He prints out his creature feature cards and has them in his science notebook.  (I love this kid -- okay a bit like mommy in this respect).

Here is the site: http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/

But there is nothing like seeing the animals for real, I mean you can watch a video of them, but real-life.....is better.

So I had him take the camera and take photos of some of the animals he has been studying and watch them having him remind me of any special features about the animals and where they live.

Let's make a list, rhinos, giraffes, bats, kangaroos, koalas, armadillos, apes, elephants, ant eaters......these are just a few......we ended up getting really hot and the lagoon was not open today so we decided to cool off in the wildlife detective and vet area.  

Below are his pictures.  Enjoy!
