Schools: Zoo Excursion Activity Sheets

School Excursions to Billabong Zoo, Port Macquarie is often the highlight of a school term. We strive to make it as enjoyable and as relevant as possible.  We have been consulting with our visiting teachers and as a result of their input we are updating our Activity Sheets that may be of assistance in the classroom before your visit and after your visit. We would really appreciate your feedback. If you have produced curriculum based activities or units where a Zoo visit is part of the lesson(s) could you please send us a pdf or word document so we may include some of the content in future activity sheets. In that way we are ensuring our Schools Activity Sheets are up-to-date and curriculum relevant. It is also a great way for teachers to share information.  Please email any comments or documents to admin@billabongzoo.com.au Thanks. We hope to see you and your students soon. Please remember we are able to tailor our school Zoo Keeper Tours to any particular topic you are covering, just let us know at the time of booking.
