Our goal is to give our students the opportunity to visit Lowry Park Zoo.  


What will be done with my students

Students will have up close visual learning opportunities to see animals while walking throughout the zoo. Students will have an interactive learning experience by listening and watching to the animal shows and zoo keepers. Finally, students will have the tactile learning experience when they participate in the stingray touch tank.  


Benefits to my students

Our students are studying books and writing "All About Books" about animals and insects. The students will be highly engaged at the zoo and in their classroom work afterwards, because they will have had a new learning experience! Kindergarten is the first place we can choose activities and experiences to enrich their growing minds-and this trip to the zoo will be one they can revisit over and over again to discuss and write about all of the animals they saw. Afterwards, they can transfer these experience over to our reading and writing non-fiction unit. We plan to use technology (iPad) to integrate technology and make visually rich books about their favorite animal and write supporting key details about their animal.  


Describe the Students
