4th Grade Visits The Wild

On Friday, October 28th, 2016, fourth grade students participated in a field trip to Chittenango’s interactive zoo, The Wild. Students were presented with the unique opportunity to connect our classroom learning about animal adaptations with animals in the real world. We observed the feeding behavior of lions and tigers. Students were able to touch and feed a camel and discuss the adaptations we had previously learned about in class. Feeding the giraffe carrots was one of the highlights of our trip! Everyone loved the baby snow leopards. Students asked a variety of insightful questions and learned about the leopards' behavioral and physical adaptations.
