You may notice there are no checklists or scavenger hunts or "assignments" in our field trip posts. I like to just go and ENJOY and let the learning happen naturally. We'll get to learn a lot from reading about the animals, watching them interact and even talking to zoo employees.
Elliott likes to take the map and lead us around. There ya go, map reading skills!
The northeast had just come out out of a freeze, and many habitats still had a lot of ice.
Of course we had to see how we measured up to a baby elephant!
The boys enjoyed the hands-on stuff as well.
This is what Elliott made.
The viewing glass inside the Primate house was dirty and smudged so it was hard to get good pictures of many of the primates, but the kids enjoyed this area.
Another great hiding/camouflage discussion.
The aquarium was okay. It had enough exhibits to keep the boys interested.
Ummmm . . . it looks like it is singing to us!
We saw a lot of different spiders and snakes.
The boys loved the "bat cave" area!
