Last Thursday our class had the fantastic opportunity of going on a day trip to the Auckland Zoo. We went around various countries’ exhibitions such as Australia, Africa, Sri Lanka, South East Asia and New Zealand. We were also lucky enough to have Kristy who is a staff member at the zoo to take us for an educational lesson around endangered animals, which is our focus topic for this term. We specifically learnt about the orangutans and tigers, followed by several tips that we ourselves can take on to help prevent many other animals becoming endangered. We all learnt a whole lot of information that is going to benefit us with further research and projects throughout this term.
