What a wonderful community amenity! The Como Zoo and Conservatory. Free and getting better all the time. The 4/5 Otters spent lots of time in the conservatory investigating primary producers (AKA plants), while the K/1 Owls studied animal habitats and the 2/3 Loons worked on animal behavior observation skills which included lots of data recording in their science note books. And lucky us, a baby giraffe had been born the week before so everyone enjoyed meeting that little guy!
