You can also talk about animalís particular habitat and how it was recreated in zoo. You can look at chimpanzee exhibit with your child and compare it to forests in Africa that they originally came from. Did zoo provide plenty of opportunities for chimpanzees to climb?
Donít forget to talk about classification of animals as well. You can ask a younger child whether a particular animal is a fish, a bird or a mammal and go into a little more detail with an older child. Youíll be surprised how much they have picked up in science class in school and will be more than happy to share with you.
After you get home from zoo, encourage your children to talk about trip, look up information online about their favorite animals, or to answer any additional questions they may have. Ask your preschooler to draw you a picture of their favorite animal.
