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.

"There are several reasons that I love My eCoach. The largest one is that it has a locker where I can store what I have created and find it later. I have made a whole bunch of things online and then forgotten where they are and sometimes even that they exist. In My eCoach I can go to the Locker and find the projects that I made in the past and am sometimes surprised at what I find!

I have also met long-term friends through My eCoach who I communicate with in other ways. I know I have not used most of My eCoach to its capacity and it is really amazing the options that it does give you."
