Today, we had the opportunity to go to the Woodland Park Zoo! I’ll admit, I heard quite a few of my students say beforehand, “Uhhhhh, we go to the zoo evvvvvery yearrrrr.” But I’m pleased to say we had quite a fabulous time. We prefer the Woodland Park Zoo to the Point Defiance Zoo, and we also noticed that this zoo has a bunch of new exhibits that weren’t there a few years ago when some of us came as kindergarteners or first graders.
In addition to seeing all the fabulous animals, we also met up with Greg from the education department, who taught us about plant and animals and how they survive with each other. Here we are on our way to visit the komodo dragon.
He also showed us the tapir, the orangutan, the lion-tail macaque, and the siamang.
My group observed the jaguar walking like it was modeling on a catwalk!
My group of eight students (so well-behaved! Wheeee!) went to one of the aviaries where we saw birds less than three feet away from us.
The weather was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, and whenever we got cold we were able to go to an indoor exhibit.
Not all the animals were exotic. In fact, we all enjoyed hanging out with the enormous chubby squirrels.
