Our School at the Zoo students arrived this morning for their second day of School at the Zoo. Students in Miller/Nantin’s group discussed different types of consumers (carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores) and were visited in class by a snake, rabbit, and tegu.
They also enjoyed visiting the Louisville Zoo’s Petting Zoo and spending time with our pygmy goats.
Nelson/Terranova’s group learned how living things interact with nonliving things in different ecosystems around the world. They enjoyed seeing our three banded armadillo in class and visiting our HerpAquarium: home to our white alligator King Louie. Both groups enjoyed visiting our lorikeets and wallabies today as well.
The ant investigation continued today with students learning the proper terms for ant anatomy and using magnifying glasses to look at ant structures up close!
