Kukai’s March English Camp “At the Zoo”

This March 2018 our English Camp students will be going to explore animals from around the world, “At the Zoo” there will be so many learning activities with early childhood education lessons that enhance their minds. All our song, dance, nursery rhymes, art, science and cooking activities will be about animals and zoos from around the world.

Kukai’s English Camp students will have fun learning to greet each other, count, say names of colors and use common phrases in English. It’s fun to hear our students laugh as they recognize the differences in the animals and why some animals have adapted to certain climates. We will compare the animals in the continents of Asia, Antartica, Africa, North-South America, Australia, and Europe. We will be creating many Zoo theme activities that will have our students enjoying the amazing world of animals.

We are looking forward to spending 3 weeks of exploration, discovery, fun, and excitement with our students. The arts and crafts zoo themes are plentiful, with the children working with art materials to create animals and natural habitats. We will also be enjoying many zoo theme sporting activities such as the giraffe ring toss and the hippo hop. The students will also be creating foods and taste testing from our menu. Science will also be taught once per week and we will touch on topics such as veterinarian medicine and proper diet.

At our camp our students will be enjoying fascinating activities along with learning Phonics, Vocabulary Building, Grammar Games, Science, and Songs. It is sure to be a fun packed journey and is a great opportunity to develop their language skills and reinforce their overall language learning. Our integrated learning methods and student centered approach to teaching ensures that all learners (visual, aural, and kinetic or action oriented) are able to acquire and retain language skills. In each class, students will engage in vocabulary building lessons related directly to the theme of “At the Zoo” This vocabulary building will equip students with the ability to express their thoughts, feelings, and opinions regarding the theme. In order to facilitate these lessons and improve general pronunciation, students will develop their phonic skills by learning to differentiate between sounds as well as recognize a sound’s various written forms. We encourage our students to participate in a fun, confidence building manner.

A zoo, also known as a zoological park or zoological garden, is a place where animals are confined within enclosures for the public to view. Many zoos also breed the animals. There are currently over 1,000 large animal collections open to the public – 80% of them in major cities. The name comes from zoology, the study of animals.

A zoo is a place where all types of animals are confined and displayed for the public to see.

Zoos give people an opportunity to observe animals they would never otherwise get the chance to see.

In many zoos the animals are also studied and bred. There are hundreds of zoos all over the world, but the first zoo was called the Ménagerie du Jardin des Plantes. It was founded in Paris in 1794.

London founded the Zoological Society of London in 1828, and the name was abbreviated to “zoo.”

The first zoo to open in the United States was in New York. The year was 1860, and it was called the Central Park Zoo.

Today, zoos are trying hard to keep animals in enclosures that replicate their natural habitat. The animals seem to do much better in this type of environment and the patrons seem to enjoy seeing the animals in a natural setting.

Many zoos also have a petting zoo where children are allowed a close-up look at animals, many of them babies.

Zoos create educational programs and tours in order to provide an educational opportunity for everyone.

Zoos throughout the world are trying to coordinate efforts to breed endangered species. The information they are learning about these animals will help zoologists preserve the species out in the wild.

Most major cities have zoos and many of them work together to care for, study and protect their animals.

  1. Start by painting the outside of your foam cup with your yellow paint. Let it dry completely.
  2. Cut a handful of orange yarn strands off of your yarn roll. Add a line of tacky glue in an oval shape around your foam cup. Start placing your yarn pieces all around the oval. Add more tacky glue and yarn strands in any places that need some additional hair. (Note: We used tacky glue because it’s a tougher glue than regular school glue. I’m not sure if school glue will work well with holding on the yarn.)
  3. Cut out some lion ears from your yellow cardstock paper. Fold the end down, apply some glue and glue them onto your foam cup lion craft.
  4. Finish your lion craft by gluing on your googly eyes and using your brown marker to draw on a nose, mouth and whisker dots.

Supplies you will need:

  1. Start by gluing down the middle section of your gray cupcake liner onto your blue cardstock paper. Leave the outside edges of it unglued for now.
  2. Cut a triangle shape out of your mini gray/silver cupcake liner. You should end up with three pieces shown in the picture below.
  3. Glue the triangle under the top of the gray cupcake liner. Glue the other pieces on the sides near the bottom to make shark fins. Now finish gluing down the outside edges of the gray cupcake liner.

  4. Cut your white cupcake liner in half and glue half of it at the bottom of your gray cupcake liner.
  5. Cut a mouth out of your red cardstock paper and glue it onto your shark.

  6. Use your white chalk marker to draw teeth inside your mouth. Also, glue your googly eyes onto your shark.
  7. Finish your artwork by drawing wave marks on the blue cardstock paper with your white chalk marker.


  1. Start by cutting a few paper straws into 1-inch sections.
  2. Overlap the ends of two pipe cleaners about one inch and twist them together to connect them. We used two pipe cleaners to make our snakes but you could add more pipe cleaners to make your snake however long you’d like.
  3. Thread your paper straw pieces onto your pipe cleaners. You’ll need to bend down the end of the pipe cleaner after threading on your first piece so they don’t fall off. Then continue adding on the paper straws until you reach the other end of the pipe cleaner. Bend down the end of the pipe cleaner at the end so the pieces don’t fall off. My daughter had fun with this because she loved making different patterns with each of her snakes.
  4. Cut out a snake head from your cardstock paper and a small snake tongue. Glue them onto the first paper straw piece. Then glue on your googly eyes.

What you need for you Fine Motor Spiders:

How to make your Fine Motor Spiders:
Start by letting your little one color your toilet paper tube. You might need to assist by holding it for them. Then cut into equal strips. Again, I cut out 5 from my single toilet paper tube.

Next, pinch in half and punch out 4 holes. Then reshape into circles. Cut your pipe cleaners in half and hand over to your little one.

I set up one spider as an example so V knew what she was attempting to do. Have them put all 4 legs through both sides.

Depending on your little one’s age you might have to help with the second hole, but let them try to figure it out.

Then bend the legs to shape however you like and glue on googly eyes.

Preschool is an age when kids are extremely curious, so it's important to captivate this curiosity by introducing them to the world of science. Our animated and interactive preschool science games will introduce kids to the world of colors, shapes, animals, plants, and much more. Our science games aim to help kids understand and appreciate the wonderful physical and natural world around them. These young learners will walk away with more interesting science facts that they will be excited to share with friends and family.

Animal Habitat-Land, Sea, and Air:
Our young scientist will learn to identify the different movements and habitats that animals naturally live in. Matching various animals with their habitats and also learning how this affects their diets.

Sink or Float:
Our young scientists will learn how certain objects naturally float while others sink when placed in water. Did you know that an orange with the peel will float while without its peel it will sink? Our students will soon understand!
I grabbed two glasses of water, filled them about 3/4 of the way full, and then I nabbed two mandarin oranges from the fridge.
Would the orange with the peel sink? Or float?
Would the peeled orange sink? Or float?
Why not?
I loved their little answers – Kids come up with the best explanations!

Lets have fun with cooking as our students all become chefs for a day. Toddlers need around 2-3 small meals and 2-3 healthy snacks each day to provide a variety of nutrients needed for healthy growth and development.

Foods such as fruit, vegetables, cheese, yogurts, wholemeal bread and unsalted rice cakes are all suitable snacks for toddlers (1-3yrs). However, here are a few additional ideas to make snack time more interesting while still ensuring they are eating healthy foods.

Apple Ladybug Treats

Slice apples in half from top to bottom and scoop out the cores using a knife or melon baller. If you have an apple corer, core them first, then slice. Place each apple half flat side down on a small plate.

Dab peanut butter on to the back of the ‘lady bug’, then stick raisins onto the dabs for spots. Use this method to make eyes too. Stick one end of each pretzel stick into a raisin, then press the pretzel stick into the apple to make the attennae.

Ants on a Log
Ingredients and Instructions:
This is a great fun way for our students to find out how cooking is fun! Using celery we fill the middle with peanut butter and simply put raisins on them that represent the ants.

Fruit and Vegetable Giraffes
Ingredients and Directions:
Using bananas for the head, body, ears, and antlers. Raisins for spots. Sprinkles for eyes and nostrils. Celery for the grass.
These culinary ideas will have our young chefs enjoying cooking!

Chinese Dragon TP Roll Craft

This is a simple craft to do for Chinese New Year or as a generic dragon craft.
The folded paper strips between the tp-roll halves means that the dragon craft can move around as if it is dancing!
The Chinese Dragon Dance is a traditional dance that involve people dressing up in costumes to make full sized "puppets". Martial arts moves, bells and drums accompany the dances.
The traditional dragon costume is made by many performers. In the picture below you can see the performers hanging onto the poles and moving the dragon.

Chinese Pottery
This is a simple craft to do as part of a China lesson.
Dragons, fish and flowers are all good choices for decorating your project. Children can visit the library to look through pictures for inspiration.
In China, pottery has been an art form as well as a means of creating useful household items for 11,000 years -- Chinese pottery focused mainly on ceramics and porcelains. The early forms of pottery were, of course, quite simple but over the years the science and art of pottery making grew and became more complex.

By the mid 1300's, Chinese ceramics became the most advanced in the world. This was the time of the Ming Dynasty (from 1368 to 1644) -- decorative Ming vases remain priceless collectibles to this day.

In the 1400's, blue and white porcelain became technologically possible and very popular -- the Dutch blue and white porcelain was originally made as an attempt to copy this popular Chinese pottery.

Paper Plate Panda Craft
If you cut out holes instead of using the template eyes, you can convert your panda craft to a panda mask. Attach a paint stir stick or tongue depressor to allow your child to hold it up to their face.
