The gorilla coloring sheets are the perfect addition to your homeschool lesson plan, after school entertainment or classroom instruction. Here are some reasons to use the gorilla coloring page:
- Learning extension: learning about gorillas at home, homeschool or in the classroom.
- Field trip: you’ve just visited the zoo and had the chance to see a gorilla in real life.
- Virtual field trip: watching a live gorilla cam from the zoo.
- Art project: learning about shading and dimension during art class.
- Reading together: reading Goodnight, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann.
