In late September, Tuckahoe School’s third grade classes ventured to the Bronx Zoo to enhance their study of Africa. While there, they visited the Congo, Madagascar, and the African Plains in search of animal species native to Africa. Students took detailed notes about each animal’s habitat, diet, predators, and adaptations. Furthermore, students will be writing persuasive essays, arguing whether or not a zoo is a good home for animals in comparison to living in their natural, wild habitat. A wonderful, fun (and extremely educational) day was had by all!
