A Day at the Zoo
Unrestricted Use

As an opportunity to bring technology into the classroom, I chose to take my students on a virtual field trip to the San Diego Zoo. It was a fun way to review some of the learning that we did in the fall. It also allowed me to introduce a new way of experiencing the zoo and a field trip to the students. We used several of the zoo’s live cameras, and actually observed the animals, and then used the videos and web pages to discuss mammals, amphibians, birds, arthropods, and reptiles. Students had a snack, and brought a stuffed animal that they used to share the type of animal, the interactions with humans, and the life cycle as well as the habitat and diet of their animal.
