On Monday, a zookeeper came. It was a lot of fun! We saw a snake and a Brazilian opossum. The snake was a king snake and the opossum was an adult. We felt the snake. The zookeeper taught us all kinds of stuff like...we learned how some animals are more scared of us than we are scared of them. Then he taught us about animal habitats.
We had a visit from the Zoo Outreach program this week! We learned all about animal classification, and we even got to see and touch 2 animals: an African Gray Hornbill and a baby alligator! Of course this happened to be the day when I forgot my camera at home, so we are borrowing pictures from Mrs. Lance's class. :) We can't wait until February when Zoo Outreach comes back to teach us about animal adaptations!
On Wednesday, a person from the Cincinnati Zoo came and brought a screech owl and a rainbow boa snake. The owl was tiny and quiet. We learned that boy owls are smaller than girl owls. This owl was a boy. The snake was not poisonous. We were allowed to touch the snake, but we couldn't touch the owl. We learned about different animal classes: fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. We had fun learning about different kinds of animals! (written by Ms. Young's class)
