Yesterday our students learned interesting facts about some exotic animals thanks to the Creature Teacher program sponsored by our PTA.
They had an opportunity to see and/or touch a baby kangaroo, a chinchilla, and a sonic hedgehog. The students also got an up close look at a giant lizard and a 7' boa both from South America.
We were able to see the kinkajou from a distance as it sat on the instructor's shoulder. Some very brave students were chosen to hold a Mexican tarantula. The teachers made great assistants as they held a few animals for students to touch.
Thank you Thelma Jones PTA for providing this experience for our students! See more animal pictures here.
