Encourage the children to think about what his/her animal eats and to draw that and what kind of an environment that animal needs (water, trees).

Also ask each child to write the name of their animal (usually using invented spelling or the adult prints the animal's name). Finally, the children glue strips of black paper on the sheet of construction paper to make the zoo cage.
