Teacher Appreciation Week - Celebrate your Teacher!
Kindergarten: Ask Your Expert!
In kindergarten, we finished up a three week domain where we learned lots of different ways that we can help protect our Earth. This past week we focused on Endangered Animals and got to go to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to help bring our learning to life.What does it mean if an animal is endangered? (There are not a lot of this species left). What does it mean if a species is extinct? (There are no more animals of this species that are alive). What are the names of some of the endangered animals we have learned about? (Pandas, Rhinos, African Elephant, Mountain Lion, Gray Wolf, Polar Bear, Green Sea Turtle, Snow Leopard, Bengal Tiger, Tree Kangaroo). Why are some reasons these animals are endangered? (Humans hunt them and humans cut down their habitats and take away their food and shelter). What was your favorite part of our trip to the zoo? (Answers will vary).
