Zoo animlas and zippers

This week we talked about the zoo and animals you would find while visiting a zoo. For this activity the children traced over the word "zoo" and then picked 3 pictures of different zoo animals. They glued their animals on the paper and then drew a "cage" around each one.

Here the children are painting stripes on a zebra. First we dipped a marble in black paint. Then I dropped a marble in their tray. As they tilted their trays back and forth the marble rolled over the zebra to create the stripes.

We also discussed the letter Z. One item we placed on our letter poster was a zipper. Then we created a graph with who had a zipper on their clothes that day.
