Exotic Animals Visit the Early Childhood Division
May 1st, 2009
On Monday, April 20, the children in Preschool, Prekindergarten, and Kindergarten enjoyed a “Safari Party” assembly presented by Lynne Grim. Ms. Grim brought to school a variety of animals such as a fox, a hedgehog, a chinchilla, an alligator, and a 20-pound Flemish rabbit. In addition to learning about respecting animals and nature in a hands-on, thoroughly enjoyable demonstration, the children also learned about sharing, tolerance and acceptance of differences, gentle touch, finding similarities, and myths about animals! Thanks to Kindergartners, Jonah Rawley and Ami Klinghoffer, for the drawings that accompany this article!
