Now that summer is here and it’s easier to get the kids outdoors, I wanted to share some great non-fiction books to introduce kids to Zoology. Zoology is the study of animals making it perfect for kids who naturally gravitate to animals, pet stores, and zoos. They are the ones who want to rescue any animal they find. Zoology is one of many career paths for kids who love animals and being outdoors! Others mentioned in Zoology for Kids include:
zookeeper: A zookeeper is a person who manages zoo animals that are kept in captivity for conservation or to be displayed to the public, and are usually responsible for the feeding and daily care of the animals.
aquarist: An aquarist is responsible for the care of fish and marine mammals kept in captivity.
veterinarian: a professional who practices veterinary medicine by treating disease, disorder, and injury in non-human animals.
wildlife researcher: zoologists and wildlife biologists study animals and other wildlife and how they interact with their ecosystems. They study the physical characteristics of animals, animal behaviors, and the impacts humans have on wildlife and natural habitats.
ecology professor: teaches and conducts research on the relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings.
conservation careers: saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world’s largest system of urban wildlife parks.
zoologist: A zoologist is someone who studies the behaviour, origins, genetics, diseases and life progression of animals and wildlife. There are a variety of different ways that a zoologist can specialize and there are many diverse jobs in this field.
Zoology Books and Activities for Kids
I am probably having way too much fun on Flipagram making small videos set to music off my iPhone which can be posted on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook or even texted or emailed to friends and family. I’m trying to showcase books that I’m posting on such as these on Zoology.
