Switcheroo Zoo

Visitors to this unique zoo make their own new creatures by switching the animals' heads, legs and tails. While students play, they can read facts about each of the animals that comprise their new beast. Make your own new animals by playing animal games, solve animal puzzles, take a guided tour and join a zoo quest.

Listen to music by the Switch Zoo Critter Chorus, watch a dog's dream, and uncover the Mystery of Switch zoo.

Build an online habitat. Students match animals to the environment best suited for their survival.

Feeding Time at Switcheroo. Your students will have fun learning about carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, and scavengers with three games based on animals' diets.

"My eCoach has proved to be a simple and easy to use resource for designing websites for various lesson topics. Before I was introduced to My eCoach, I had no prior knowledge on how to design a website. Now that I have a membership to it, I know that I can quickly log-on to design a website where I can post resources, weblinks, documents, images, video/audio samples, etc.

My students have greatly enjoyed working on the websites that I’ve created (little do they know how easily I was able to make them because of the "Clone this" feature). They especially appreciate the fact that they can leave comments on the pages. And what’s great is that I can monitor each of the comments before I allow them to be published."
