Zoo

The best way to learn about anything is to observe it up close and personal. That’s why going to the zoo is such a treat. Where else can you see so many wildlife animals gathered in one place? You can watch lions prowl, snakes slither and parrots squawk, all at the same time (not to mention the cotton candy). We can’t provide food, but the HomeworkSpot team has tried to bring the zoo straight to you, to enjoy (and learn from!) from the comfort of your computer.

  • National Zoo
    Look at the photo gallery and live webcams featuring the zoo’s animals, or read the animal fact sheets for information about your favorite animals. And if that’s not enough, play virtual games like the Bird Bill Matching Game and download animal coloring pages.

  • Virtual Zoo
    Browse primates, aquatic animals, reptiles, birds and predators. Click on any animal that interests you to learn more about them, to listen to them, or to be quizzed about them.






  • University of Michigan Museum of Zoology
    Browse the Kingdom Animalia, from echinoderms and arthropods to birds and sharks. Look at pictures and diagrams to understand each animal better, and even listen to their sounds.

  • The Switcheroo Zoo
    The Switcheroo Zoo lets you create your own animals by picking and choosing your favorite features of each animal. And for the educational part: the Web site provides facts about animals. Did you know that the male bison’s bellow can be heard up to three miles away?

  • Animal Planet
    Watch the Animal Planet TV, download videos, and play games on the Web site. Click on Animals A to Zoo to learn more about each animal.

  • The Electronic Zoo
    Click on an animal and see a list of links to Web sites about that animal. Learn about everything from invertebrates to ferrets.
