Stations for Party for the Planet
The zoo set up stations throughout the zoo to visit. For each station they got a stamp for the Planet Passport. The stations focused on a variety of topics from endangered animals to identifying foods for each animal.
A few stations were craft station like clothespin butterflies and a mouse bookmark. They had a variety of information for the participants to take home including some cards that were for each animals, very similar to baseball cards. A few station were even hands on learning with animals. Check out this snake!
Follow Up Activities at Home
As we finished I wanted to make sure that the message they were teaching our children carried through at home. We brought home materials about the animals and colored the papers. Then I encouraged my oldest daughter who’s 6 to do a little research about them and write about the specific topics they shared. This is an easy way to make connections at home to what your sharing with your child.
