We're going to the zoo! zoo! zoo!
We went over what he has learned in class...Mammals are warm blooded and they have hair. Birds are warm blooded and have feathers. Both are vertebrate (meaning they have backbones).
Here are some pics from the zoo trip:
a display about eggs and nests
a bird of paradise
a Victoria crowned pigeon
The boys with their bird masks
Probably the best part of the day was when we saw the spider monkeys, C read the sign himself, and said "Do spiders come out of their butts or something?" We about died laughing!
We also checked out the Keiki Zoo (Children's Zoo) and of course, the playground!
The yummiest part was getting shaved ice afterwards
We found that the zoo does have lots of great keiki programs as well, and may look into doing some of them while we are here...as they coincide with our curriculum.
Some of the zoo activities they have are:
Keiki Zoo Keeper
and Star Gazing at the Zoo
And of course, we'll be covering oceans and oceans animals this year...we will also be checking out the Aquarium! Which also has lots of great programs, as well.
I have some zoo cards that I need to laminate and put on a ring for us to use on our next zoo trip.
