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 provides me with lots of great tools which I can use as part of my new teacher training program. Information can be found all in one place and accessed from anywhere! Using our Team Page, I quickly post program updates. With the Universal Builder, I've created a web site for everyone's common questions. I've learned a great deal about my teachers and their practice through our Forum, and my teachers have been able to network and share their terrific teaching ideas. My team coaches and I are able to provide timely feedback for our new teachers' learning plans--no more NCR forms!

My eCoach provides increased opportunities for communication, quick access to customized online resources, and the ability to collect program data and improve accountability."
