We’re going to the zoo

Today the students from Prep to grade 2 went on an excursion to the Melbourne Zoo.
We took our friend Gudiya from India on our trip. Here Miinee is holding her on the bus ride to Melbourne.

Guess what Prep/1F and Gudiya are about to go and see???
We loved the butterfly enclosure. What kind of habitat do they live in? Do you know why?

Roan enjoyed seeing the lions who were resting in the long grass.

These giraffes were definitely a highlight. We couldn’t believe how tall they were!

Gudiya had a fantastic day at the zoo with Prep/1F. We have got lots of new knowledge and experiences to discuss back at school now.

What do you think?

Here Prep/1F were given a picture to look at. They had to do a brainstorm to share their thoughts on the image.
