Hi! It’s Tuesday, May 15, 2012 and time for Science at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo: Zoo Keeper Training

Age Range: 9 and up (very young children and non-readers may enjoy with parental assistance)

A Maryland ClickScholar suggested this fun interactive game, sponsored by the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado, where you can learn what it takes to become a zookeeper.

When you get to the site, you must fill out an employment application and then begin training in the Zoo Keeper program. Learn about different animals, find out how to take care of them, prepare the animals’ diets, and pass the quizzes to become an “Honorary Keeper Supervisor.”  Use the Zoo Keeper Handbook to help you win the game!

Some of the animals in your  virtual care will be:

  • Reticulated Giraffe
  • Colobus Monkeys
  • Nile Hippos
  • Komodo Dragon
  • Penguins
  • Mexican Gray Wolves
  • Grizzly Bear
  • Bald Eagle
  • Western Hognose Snake

As you play this fun game, you’ll learn all about animal safety, diet, enrichment and training.
