3rd through 5th grade students had a wonderful time on their field trip to the Atlanta Zoo! Students began the morning with a tour of the zoo. Science skills were put to work as students observed animals in their natural habitats. They walked through the African Savannah to see elephants and giraffes, strolled through rain forest jungles to see a variety of snakes and frogs, peeked at the sleeping pandas in the bamboo forest and crawled through the dens of naked mole rats! After the tour, students visited the petting zoo where they brushed and said hello to a few friendly goats. The morning excitement was concluded with a pleasant picnic lunch in Grant Park. Our fun filled day was completed with an educational program discussing the different types and characteristics of habitats. This interactive program had students onstage as they discussed producers and consumers within an ecosystem. The program ended with an alligator encounter! Student got to pet a 2 year old alligator and reflect on an awesome and educational experience at the zoo!
