We are lucky enough to live walking distance from our local zoo, and since we have a membership we tend to go there often.
I created these animal report forms for LittleMan and SunnyGirl to quickly make notes on the animals we met at the zoo, though the forms could also be completed at home with the help of books and/or internet searches.
There are two versions, depending on the child’s age. Both versions include a space to write the animal’s name, followed by its diet, its classification, and a small world map to color-in its habitat. There is also a small space for drawing a picture as well as a few lines for writing any extra info. I’ve kept the lines large in the older version for the reluctant writers (like LittleMan), though children who are advanced in writing may find the lines too bulky for them.
The difference between the two versions is simply that of vocabulary usage.
The older child’s form uses the terms herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, and insectivore to describe diet. Animals are classified by mammal, reptile, amphibian, invertebrate, fish, or bird.
The younger child’s form uses more simplified terms. Animal diet options are divided into plants, meat, or plants and meat. Animal classification is divided by who lives in the sky, on land, or in water.
