Escape From The Zoo

  • Story by Janie Spaht Gill, Ph.D.
  • Illustrations by Elizabeth Lambson
  • DOMINIE PRESS / Pearson Learning Group
  • GLE: Problem/Solution (pre-kindergarten, kindergarten & Grades 1 & 2)
  • Curriculum Extension Activities
    • Have the children play a guessing game.  The leader does an animal movement and the other children guess the animal.
    • Invite the children to bring a stuffed animal from home.  Have them classify the animals by color, and then record the numbers of animals of each color.  Arrange the animals in order from largest to smallest.  If possible, weigh the toys and arrange them in order from lightest to heaviest.
    • Write the names of the animals in the book across the bottom of a sheet of chart paper.  Have the children vote for their favorite animal, thereby creating a bar graph.
    • Ask the children to draw and cut out their favorite animal in the story.  Under each drawing, have them write the names of the animal.  Arrange the animals on a chart from lightest to heaviest, and then in alphabetical order. 
    • Do simple mathematical word problems, using children standing in front of the class.  (“Two monkeys plus one elephant equals three animals,” etc.)
