Thanks Brandi for this site. Not only can the students visit the zoo, but you have also provided a great worksheet for use to in the classroom.

What a neat way for children who don't have the opportunity to go themselves, plus learn at the same time. The worksheet that accompanied the material was nice.

Good for students that can't take field trips.

A virtual zoo trip is very useful for teachers or schools that are not located near a zoo. Thanks.

This could be a great resource for a project in Biology or Zoology class.

This is perfect for a zoology class or doing an "Adopt-an-Animal" project for 7th graders.
