Website Wednesday - Switch Zoo

I am sure that some of you have animal lovers in your home. I recently found a really fun website called Switch Zoo. The website has all sorts of interactive activities to help kids learn about animals while having fun. There is so much to do on this site and I have only tried a couple of the activities so far. One of the activities that I liked happened to be one where you create a biome. Using the compatibility meter, you add elements to your biome making sure that the animals are suited to the habitat. I also tried another activity where you had to place animals in the locations where they live in the world. After you have found the animal's home, some facts about the animal are revealed.

The centerpiece of the Switch Zoo website is an activity where you create fictitious animals by blending parts of different animals. As you do this, facts about the animals are revealed. An amazing number of animals are represented!

This website is a  fun way to learn about animals!
