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.

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
