On Friday, our anticipated trip to the zoo finally arrived. We had perfect weather which was cloudy and cool for the day. With our school sack lunches and enthusiasm and a bumpy school bus ride, we were ready!
Prior to the trip, I prepared the class by looking at the zoo website and by looking at the 4 classifications of animals provided ~ mammals, reptiles, birds, and amphibians.
This trip was also an introduction to our non-fiction writing unit. Students will choose one of these animals to create a non-fiction project and presentation in class.
Here is a photo of my awesome class sitting on a sculpture of a Komodo Dragon.
And...that was the best PBJ school sandwich and chips ever!
