1st Grade Trip to the Santa Ana Zoo

1st Grade Trip to the Santa Ana Zoo

Posted by on February 13, 2018 in General News

On February 1st, first grade Scholars went on a wonderful animal adventure to the Santa Ana Zoo. This trip was planned by the first grade team to answer their PBL question, "What are the conditions within a habitat that are beneficial for living things and those that are not good for living things?" Individually, students formulated and wrote a Habitat Report in which they introduced their chosen zoo animal, shared their opinion for the best habitat, and supplied reasons that supported the opinion, and provided a concluding statement or section. The adventure began with a live animal spotlight followed by an exploration of the zoo on a self-guided tour. In various sections of the zoo, our Scholars interacted with education volunteers to learn about the specific adaptations for animals they observe.
