Math manipulatives of various kinds SOA June 7, at So I asked what are we supposed to do if we see a kid burning? They said send them in to the nurse. I mean I guess that is better then letting them burn.
We celebrated Earth Day throughout the week and went on a field trip to the zoo. Our trip to the zoo started with a bus tour to get a snapshot of what we wanted to see.
We were able to see more animals than ever before, because they were out due to the overcast weather. Some of our favorite zoo animals: The male lion was one of the first animals we saw.
He sat there lounging the whole time we watched. At times, he even turned to look at us. The children who had never seen a real lion before were amazed! We had to see the elephants.
The zoo has an "open enclosure," so the public can see the "behind the scene" activities with the elephants. And what are these?
We had just finished our study of the rainforest, so the children were so excited to see the peccaries. The reptile house is always a "must stop" for the students. Snakes are their favorites. Lots of "oohs" and "aahs" as we walked along the enclosures.
With all the excitement about what the children saw, writing and sharing was a natural extension of the zoo trip experiences. Zoo Field Trip Printables includes a couple of zoo trip writing and drawing activities. For other zoo animal writing activities see: Our first graders visit an ocean institute, walk to a nature center, see a play, and visit the zoo for our "first grade" field trips.
