A Visit to the Animal Zoo

Grade 5 and 6 students are studying about vertebrates. For this reason a trip was assigned to the animal zoo “Animal Encounter” in Alay- Mount Lebanon. This zoo was established to take care of endangered animals.
It was an exciting and interesting time. As we arrived, students watched a power point presentation about animals with bad reputation.They listened, asked, and discussed information with their presenter.Then, it was time to see the animals found in the zoo. Students had the chance to see a hawk, turtle, sheep, bear, deer, ostrich, hyena…
Finally it was time for playing and having fun.Students were divided into 3 groups of 20 members each.Each group played a different game that illustrates the lives of some animals such as birds,moth, and bats.
