Kindergarten Zoo

Susannah teaches kindergarten. One of the many things she's contributed to the kindergarten team is the idea for their annual kindergarten zoo. The kids are assigned a habitat and they have to research an animal from that habitat, memorize some facts, dress up like that animal, and perform it for everyone. Each kid has a little button that says "push me." Parents and visitors walk around and push the buttons. The kids then recite their facts. It's the cutest thing ever.
In the savanna, we have a zebra, a cheetah, a lion, and an elephant.
In the arctic, there's a dall sheep, an arctic fox, an arctic hare, and a polar bear.
In the ocean, there's a sea turtle, a killer whale, and a dolphin.
The jellyfish was too shy to join the group, but his costume was fabulous.
The desert animals included a coyote, a desert iguana, a rattlesnake, and a camel.
Lastly was the rain forest. The animals there were the tiger, the parrot, the jaguar, and the red eyed tree frog.
Here's a cute picture of Haiden, the killer whale! CUTE!

What a cute idea! Our kids would have loved something like that. Oh, the joys of kindergarten. I sure loved it! Now I teach the CTR 5's so I guess it's the next best thing. :)
