We have been learning about some really cool zoo animals this week in preparation for our field trip to the Toledo Zoo on Friday! Tuesday and Wednesday we learned about Buffaloes and Seals. Tuesday we read Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? by Audrey Vernick and watched a youtube video about Native American cave paintings (where buffaloes were sometimes featured!). Then we made our own cave paintings!
Wednesday we read the non-fiction book Beautiful Zoo Animals and learned some general facts about many different kinds of animals. For our craft we made Harp Seal pups out of a sock and some stuffing. The students loved building homes for their baby seals! In the morning we also went on a long walk around the neighborhood. Check our flickr group for a cute picture!
