Today, 1/2A & 1/2 M read the Dr. Seuss book ‘If I Ran the Zoo’.


In the book, Gerald McGrew is a kid who, when visiting a zoo, finds that the exotic animals are “not good enough”. He says that if he ran the zoo, he would let all of the current animals free and find new, more bizarre and exotic ones. Throughout the book he lists these creatures, starting with a lion with ten feet and escalating to more imaginative (and imaginary) creatures, such as the Fizza-ma-Wizza-ma-Dill, “the world’s biggest bird from the island of Gwark, who eats only pine trees, and spits out the bark.”

We created our own creatures for our own ‘New Zoo, McGrew Zoo’. Here are some …..

So a question for you …. If you could create an imaginative creature for our zoo, what would it be and what would it do …?
