This 15-minute pre-recorded video features Sacramento Zookeepers and animals, interactive graphics, and integrated discussion breaks to engage your classroom in critical thinking and collaborative discussions. The theme of this video is healthy living- how the Sacramento Zoo keeps their animals healthy, and what all animals (including humans) need to stay healthy. Topics within the video includes: eating styles of animals, food chains and food web, energy transfer from plants, and the food groups humans need. The video also includes a Teacher’s Guide which provides additional ELA and Math ideas for each grade level to seamlessly integrate into your curriculum.
