How impressing it was for the kids to be  on pretend trip to the zoo with their friends!
Did you know that taking kids to the zoo offers a lot of benefits? Children are naturally inquisitive. They are  always looking out for more ideas, to boost their knowledge. Today they were happy to see a tiger, elephant, giraffe, snake and many others. What an awesome way to learn about the world they live in!

Do you find counting interesting?

We use math numbers in almost every daily activity, these concepts are necessary for kids to grasp. By reinforcing this, we used some balls and basket. Kids were led to count the balls according to the corresponding numbers placed in front of them. They found this very interesting as they had stickers for a perfect job done.

Skill building activities!

Kids were instructed on how to run as fast they could, pass all the obstacles in the zoo to get to the hungry elephant to give him some peanuts. Activities like this help kids to improve balance coordination and strength.

Creativity- what a wonderful world!

With this activity it’s not all about a predetermined goal. It’s an open ended activity for kids to design what they can but to look like the structure of the sample given to them. With activities like this, you get to know how creative kids can get. Kids were given the different parts of a tigers face to make it whole.

Activities like this bring about deep concentration which is calming and deep satisfying for the child.  Kids were given the skin of different animals as well as the toy animals. They were to match the animals according to the skin. It allowed them to demonstrate their knowledge.
