If your kids are like my kids, then they love animals. We frequent the National Zoo website often, to watch the live animal cams. While I was nosing around looking what else they have to offer I found free curriculum and lesson plans covering conservation, panda bears, grasslands, urban habitats, wetlands. The conservation program is done completely online, the others you download and print. Some are for younger children but a lot are geared towards older learners. I will be using the Giant Panda lesson for both kids next year, and DJ will be doing all of them as part of his Science curriculum. Let your kids visit the National Zoo website and watch the live cams. It is FREE! While your at it let them enjoy the video of the Red Panda, below, from the National Zoo. Enjoy and happy learning!
