Zoo Field Trip

Yesterday was a n awesome day. I had the opportunity to travel to Toronto with Natalie’s class and go to the Zoo. We have been to other smaller zoos, but this was Natalie’s first time at a large, world class zoo. The bus ride down was uneventful, loud, but uneventful. The kids were all super hyped up and excited. We had a quick snack as soon as we arrived, then we were off. We wend into every pavillion and exibit along the way. We learned about conservation, Elephants, Mandrils, pygmy hippos and so much more. I was lucky and all the kids in my group were fantastic! They listened and just behaved wonderfully. We spent so much time in the pavillions and exhibits in the African area, we would up leterally running through the Americas in order to get back to the bus. I really wish that we had had a wee bit more time there. The bus ride home was slightly quieter, but oddly enough not much. We didn’t hit any traffic and made it back to the school right on time.

This morning, I volunteered in the class and the kids had a little mini project to complete about their favourite animal. We used the zoos website, as well at whatever they could remember to complete the task.

I am so glad I was able to go and help out!
