Excitement is building as the 9th and 1st grade classes look forward to their upcoming field trip to the zoo; yet, there is some preparation that is needed before the adventure. This week the 9th grade class presented different animals that the 1st grade class will look for on their field trip. The older students were tasked with researching an animal, it’s classification, life cycle, habitat, geographical location, food (predictor/ prey) and some fun facts. They created a tri-board to aid in their presentations to the younger students. The first grade class learned about giraffes, american alligators, scarlet macaws, peacocks, ostriches, small owls, hippos, zebras, and coatimundi. The ninth grade answered questions from the sweet, curious minds and taught them the classification song to help them understand all that they are learning.
