Zoo Visit

We kicked off our study of animal groups this spring with a visit from the Como Zoo with their program "Fur, Feathers, Scales and Slime."  It was a great way to see some animals from different animal groups up close--and learn some fun facts about them.  We learned that hedgehogs are nocturnal, that chickens like grapes, and that geckos can release their tails when they sense danger and grow new ones!

Some friendly blue amphibians--usually poisonous but not in this case (they are not fed the insects that would make them poisonous in the wild).

A leopard gecko named Lily

A hen named Kiwi relaxing--and eating grapes!

Rocket the Hedgehog, a class favorite.

We are excited to learn more for our field trip to Eastman Nature Center in a week and a half!
