What Children can get from learning about Zoo Animals

When I was young, I remember my father brought me once to Manila Zoo even if he can hardly make ends meet. I was so happy then seeing the Zoo Animals for the first time. Now that I have my own children, I try to bring them there even if our place is far. Now it makes me wonder. Why do children need to see these creatures? What can they get from them? Come to think of it, here are some of the good reasons.


As a child, it is normal to be excited to see wonderful things he seldom sees. Although most of them are considered wild animals, children are curious how they look like in real life. After seeing them, they will be able to share stories with their classmates and friends. They will not forget this wonderful experience and they will pass in on to the next generation. Admit it; even adults like us are also excited to visit the zoo once in a while.


While children are learning from school, they should also be aware about nature and this includes the zoo animals. It is also important for them to realize that some of these animals are now endangered and needs support from us, humans. It is therefore our responsibility as parents to educate our children on how to help protect our nature. After all, they are of big help us to balance our ecological system.

Now, here’s the catch.

I found a great site where you and your children can enjoy these zoo animals. They organized the list of these animals according to categories such as the biggest, the smallest and other characteristics. In addition, they prepared a variety of Animal Activities and Crafts where you can choose as educational tools for your children. Of course, it will not be complete if they have no Animal books and toys where they provide a wide collection of useful references and quality toys that fit for all ages of children.

If this post did not strike you, feel free to visit the site and convince yourself that I am wrong.
