Zoo Day - This has been a great success in one of my regular schools.

One or two classes are divided into a total of twelve groups. Each group is then allotted an animal from the list that I provide. Over the course of a few weeks the groups research their animals. On the eve of Zoo Day the hall is transformed into a zoo with displays of information made by the zoo keepers.

On the morning of Zoo Day I arrive with the twelve different species and their display vivariums etc.

Over the course of Zoo Day the rest of the school visit the zoo and learn from the zoo keepers.
