Zoo Ed at Laurel Hills


2nd graders at Laurel Hills Elementary had the opportunity participate in a Zoo Education program provided by the Kansas City Zoo.  The program integrates the common core state standards with interactive games and lessons. 

 Developing the skills of a junior zoologist, students learned basic classification rules and techniques. The lesson taught students about the tarantula, gibbon, tortoise, lorikeet, and polar bear, which all live at the Kansas City Zoo. 

 “I’m so excited that we have had the opportunity to be a part of this!  The lessons have been very engaging and interactive. The children will remember this for a lifetime!” Some students mentioned how, “This is the best day ever!” They look forward to taking a field trip to the Kansas City Zoo in the spring,” said 2nd Grade Teacher Mrs. Carla Williams said

 Last week, the Zoo Mobile visited Laurel Hills to teach the students about invertebrate and vertebrate animals.  They were also able to get a close look at some of the animals they have learned about.
