FARM, JUNGLE, DESERT, OCEAN, FOREST
Our playgroups last week learned (and most of them knew already) where we can find specific animals. A cow usually lives on a farm, where as a monkey we would find in a jungle. We read an amazing pop-up book called The Very Busy Bee by Jack Tickle which has great illustrations that the children loved.
Making a mystery box is really easy. All you need is:
- 1 medium sized box that is wrapped. You can use either construction paper or wrapping paper
- For animals, you can either use small plastic animals (can find some at the dollar store) or I just used CriCut cut-out animals.
Our activity was to sort out stickers into two groups: farm animals and zoo animals. Its amazing to see that even the youngest children knew where they could find animals, and where they live!

A great activity for the summer is going to the zoo. The Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City has a children's story time this Saturday, June 2 that is interactive with the children. Each class includes a story, a craft, and a special animal encounter. This program is geared towards younger learners but will be enjoyed by children of all ages.
