Police officers in Norfolk, Virginia, responded to reports that a lion was on the loose. They urgently contacted the local zoo to see if any of their lions had escaped. But it turned out that the animal which terrified residents was actually a labradoodle named Charles, which had been shaved to look like a lion. X) - I LOVE CHARLES!
Whether your class is taking a field trip to the local zoo, or if you simply use this scavenger hunt as a means of building animal vocabulary, this zoo animal scavenger hunt is a great supplement to your zoo unit! I also like to use scavenger hunts in literacy centers with a pile of relevant picture books or magazines.
