Well, we have made it all the way down to the end of the alphabet and are finally on Z.
I’ve decided to bring up the tail-end of this series with Z is for Zoo. The zoo is one of our family’s favorite places to take a field trip. It’s a great learning experience for all ages and it’s very affordable. If you’re a homeschooling family and don’t already have a membership to your local zoo, I highly recommend getting one. These memberships often pay for themselves within 2-3 visits, depending on your family size and membership level you purchase.
I’ve had it on my to-do list for quite some time to make zoo scavenger hunt printables for my crew for when venture to the zoo. Since my kids range in age from 1 year to 11 years, I decided to make a few scavenger hunts at varying levels. What better time than now to make the scavenger hunts to go along with the letter Z in The ABCs of Homeschooling series and share them with my readers too!
I’m offering these printables FREE to My Joy-Filled Life subscribers. As a subscriber to My Joy-Filled Life you will get weekly(ish) updates and occasional information about great freebies, giveaways, and offers.

Lots of schools do scavenger hunts at the zoo, but parents don’t always know about that idea, so I pinned this to my “parenting” board on Pinterest so other parents can see it!
We did a similar hunt over the summer at the Columbus Zoo – it was much larger than the zoo my kids are used to and the hunt helped to keep them going and interested. I love this one, and will have to add it a board for future use. Thanks for sharing!
I LOVE this! I am newer to homeschooling, (not really doing to much with it yet since my daughters are 3 and 1) but I love to do things like this. It is definitely going in my zoo lesson plan for next year.
I am so glad I found this idea. I printed off a few copies of the picture one for my kids to use tomorrow. We are taking them to The Henry Dooly Zoo tomorrow. It will be the scond zoo trip for my son and the first for my twins. I am so excited for them to learn about all the different animals. Thank you again for such a wonderful printable.
Thanks for this! We are going on a zoo-cation but I am also using the zoos as school hours. I like that there’s a picture one for the littler kiddos and then some with more reading involved for the big kid. 🙂
I’ve been throwing around the idea of making similar pages for my kids recently and stumbled upon your page in my search for content. I have to say your scavenger hunt pages are perfect and just what I was looking for! I also have shared your post on my preschool page on Facebook and linked back to you.
Wonderful! Thank you Kim! I hope you and your kids enjoy them! That reminds me that I should take a trip to the zoo with my kiddos!
