Smithsonian National Zoological Park


Here is the National Zoological Park right at our fingertips. Students will find many things to explore at this colorful and engaging site. Any study of animals will have a successful start here. Chances are students can catch their favorite animal on a webcam. By choosing a habitat under "Animals, etc." students can learn about the major animals found there. For instance, choose the Amazonia Habitat and learn about the mammals, birds, reptiles and fish. Each section includes beautiful pictures. Most sections include a live cam - as long as it is daylight there and as long as the animals walk into the camera view. This would make a great site to include in a webquest for information on the diverse world of animals.
