Our Zoo Day

One of the things I must admit I love about home schooling is the freedom to teach the way I want to. This Friday we decided to take advantage of the lingering nice weather and head to the zoo. Our local zoo is The Ft.Wayne Childrens Zoo. I printed off some observation worksheets for the kids and off we went. They loved every moment of it.
I had each child choose an animal to observe and they will do a small report on their animal in the coming weeks. Jeremiah chose the Komodo Dragon and Briana the Orangutan. We spent many hours reading about each animal and studying the behaviors, feedings, mating and responses of each.
We are looking forward to our next visit.
