Last week we went on and African adventure close to home to investigate living things and their habitats. When we arrived we embarked on a bumpy safari tour. We drove around the open plains and learnt about the animals, what they eat and where they live. It was amazing to be so close to such amazing animals. We learnt about some of the reasons many of them are endangered and what the zoo is doing to help the species survive.
After that we participated in the habitat detective workshop where we listened to the sounds of natures and looked for signs of living things in our environment. We talked about some of the things that all living things need to survive including shelter, water and food.
Finally, we had some free time to look around the zoo. There were so many things to see!
