Brevard Zoo Page Private Sarah's School Field Trip November 20, 2009

Field Trip to Brevard Zoo! November 20, 2009

My mom has been to the Brevard zoo at least four times for class field trips. For some reason we have never made it to the Brevard zoo as a family. So once mom found out the next field trip was to Brevard Zoo she signed me up right away. On the big Disney bus heading to the zoo! I am sitting next to my really good friend Aiden. We have been friends since we were in the two year old class room.
We finally made it! What a long bus ride! Thank goodness we got to watch a movie on the way!

Mom combined her class with mine so we could spend some time together as well. Mom made it clear to everyone that after we used the potty we were heading to Africa so we could feed the giraffes. I think my mom was more excited about feeding the giraffes than the rest of us. Once we reached our destination, mom bought giraffe a bunch of giraffe food so everyone could enjoy the experience of feeding this unique animal.
There are not many zoos that allow people to feed giraffes. This is one of the highlights to visiting the Brevard zoo. Here I go 1, 2, and 3 my goodness look at that enormous tongue. I can do this!

I liked it so much I fed this giraffe four more time. What a great experience and I can't wait to come again!
Next stop, the petting zoo. What a great place to get up close and personal with the animals. I spent some time brushing this deer.
My mom and her classmates cheered me on so I would build up enough courage to touch this huge iguana. At first I kept telling the zoo keeper that I only wanted to brush her. After being told that I could not use the brush on this creature I stuck my little finger out and touched it really quick. Every one's cheers scared me so much I went running right to my mom. She was so proud of me for being so brave.
Taking a train ride around the zoo.
Anther great feature the zoo has to offer is feeding the birds. I have done this a few times before and am not a big fan of it. As you can see by my face I did not enjoy seeing all the birds around my teacher.

I wanted to take a few minutes and show everyone some of the cool November projects I did with my students.

What are you Thankful For? Every year our school has a Thanksgiving Pot Luck and we used this as one of our table center pieces.
Each of the students made his or her own table decorations. This is just a sample that I have had for a few years. The table decorations the children made this year turned out SUPER! I wish I would of taken a picture of all of them.
Every year I send home a What Are You Thankful For Feather. The goal is for the family to work together to show what makes their family special. This is one of my favorite activities and the board always gets a million compliments.
We are learning about AB, patterns in math so I the class decorated Corn - y patterns.

Lol I honestly do not think that is an iguana. That thing looks carnivorous.
