Who's Who
At the Zoo?


Provide a small amount of hay, boots, gloves, doctors' jackets, pants, and large shirts, jump ropes, nets, plastic pails, shovels, scoops, baby bottles, plastic stethoscopes, and stuffed animals that would be found at a zoo. Invite children to dress up and use the materials to pretend to be a zoo keeper, a zoo doctor, or a zoo animal trainer. Invite the rest of the class to guess which worker each child is pretending to be.
