Using Animals as Teaching Tools: A Handbook for the Zoo Project for Handicapped Children.
Lamb, Gerald F.
The handbook was developed to allow teachers to take advantage of the ideas of persons participating in the Zoo Project for Handicapped Children, in which educationally and mentally handicapped children received language arts instruction organized around the use of animals at the zoo site and in classrooms. The first section of the handbook lists ideas for activities such as having children describe photographs of themselves with zoo animals; having children observe and discuss the different smells, sounds, and appearances of animals; and allowing children to devise means of testing whether different animals react to sound. The second and third sections of the handbook contain materials which teachers might wish to duplicate and which are printed so that they may be used as master copies in a thermal process copying machine.
