Animal Adventures Visited 1st Grade
Cassie from Animal Adventures visited the 1st graders on Monday. She taught the classes facts about each animal visitor and then the students were able to pet them. Some of the favorites were Sofia the Chinchilla, Bandit the Ferret, SpongeBob the Albino Burmese Python, and Phineas the Kinkajou. A few students were chosen to wear a Chinchilla hat or a Kinkajou bracelet!
Plantmobile Visited 2nd Grade
The students also learned about a the top pollinators: honey bees and butterflies. These pollinators take pollen from one flower/plant to another, producing flowers, fruits, vegetables, or seeds. Pollinators are important because we depend on them for a wide range of food.
