London Zoo - KS1/KS2 - Taking a tour of London Zoo
This lesson is suitable for children in upper KS1 and lower KS2. It is part of a wider unit about London Zoo and is an ideal preparatory lesson for a trip there.

The colourful presentation introduces children to some of the animal groups children might see at London Zoo including mammals, fish, insects, birds, reptiles and amphibians.

The activity then takes children on a tour of the zoo and challenges them to record the animals they would see at different points in their journey.

It is differentiated two ways:
- the standard activity asks children to identify 20 different animals
- the easier activity asks children to identify animals but also gives the first letter of each animal as a clue

The activity sheet can be photocopied to A3 size to allow for children with larger handwriting.
