  • A set of rules will also be included with the mat, spinner, and box.

Puzzle map
Puzzle Map

  • This would be a new project.

  • Make a large puzzle map of how the new zoo will look like.

Trivial pursuit game
Trivial Pursuit game

  • Based on trivial pursuit with questions on animals.

  • Random number generator instead of dice.

  • Electronic question or category generator.

  • Question database can be modified in the future and be classified by age/difficulty.

Millionaire game
Millionaire game

  • Question format similar to millionaire game. (e.g. multiple choice)

  • But instead of monetary reward, use endangered animal totem pole.

Virtual tour of the zoo
Virtual tour of the zoo

  • Simulate closed zoo environment in a CD-ROM.

  • Clips of animals in the zoo pop up as user clicks on the animals in the virtual zoo.

  • Simulate walking through the zoo using pictures.

  • Places in virtual zoo can contain other mentioned games.

Magnet fishing game
Magnet fishing game

  • Revolving fishing pond (Or other scenario) where players try and catch the fish with a fishing pole and magnet attached to the end.

  • Fishes’ mouth open and close to increase difficulty.

  • Another perspective is to feed the animals instead.

Animal slot machine
Animal slot machine

  • Matching animals instead of normal slot machine pictures.

  • Can use machine as reward for other games (e.g quizzes).

  • Reward can be animal stickers, animal erasers, animal candy…

  • Reward can be based on what animal is lined up.

Oceanic habitat
Oceanic habitat

  • Fish tank with mechanical/electrical animals

    • Animals in different water levels (deep sea animals at the bottom and surface animals)

    • Animals move around using simple mechanics

    • Try to demonstrate how animals interact/move.

Prairie dog whack a mole
Prairie dog whack-a-mole

  • A fun way to keep kids busy and tire them so they won’t bother the adults.

  • A break from sedentary activities that allows kids to vent their energies.

  • Improves reflex (dexterity) and hand-eye coordination.

How to be a zookeeper game
How to be a zookeeper game

  • Could be incorporated with other games mentioned.

  • The main purpose is to educate children what is involved in zoo keeping.

  • Could be an activity instead of a game.


  • Numerous ideas such as

    • Spot the difference between 2 pictures

    • Jigsaw puzzles with animal shaped pieces

    • “Moving scrambled pieces with one empty square” puzzle

      • Puzzles could be mechanical or electronic (in cd-rom). We can work either way 

Animal train
Animal Train

  • This game will involve a working train model with animals on the boxcars.

  • Children will have to guess the animal on the boxcar when it pops up.

  • The children must push a button that corresponds to their answer, a wrong guess sounds a buzzer and makes the animal pop back down, a right guess makes some information about the animal play through a speaker.

Zoo team presentation

Quiz LED Board

  • This project will consist of a board with four buttons and two lights.

  • Quizzes can be programmed in the device with multiple choice answers.

  • The children must push the button that corresponds to the right answer, if they are wrong, the red light goes on with a buzzer. If they are right, the green light goes on and the device dings, and the child moves to the next question.

Where s my mommy memory
Where’s my mommy? Memory

  • This would be similar to the card game memory.

  • The child must match the baby to its mother for many animal species. If the child is correct, he/she gets to go again. The person with the most matches at the end wins.

Jigsaw puzzle
Jigsaw Puzzle

  • Jigsaw puzzle would be large enough for several students to work on at a time.

  • Puzzle will contain pictures of several animals.

Animal sound simon says
Animal Sound Simon Says

  • This game will test a child’s memory by making animal sounds that correspond to buttons on a game board. The child must correctly push the buttons in the same order as he/she heard the animal sounds.

  • The board would be colorful and the buttons would contain pictures of the animal making the sound.

Litebrite led board
LiteBrite LED Board

  • Similar to LiteBrite, we would design an LED board with custom designs for many animals. The child would place the correct lights on the board to form the animals.

  • Facts could be included along with the animals for educational value.
