A trip to the Philadelphia Zoo

The children of Trevose Day School and Neshaminy Montessori spent the day at the Philadelphia Zoo.

Aside from a fun day seeing all types of animals with their friends, parents and teachers, the children learned many valuable lessons; one of which is the importance of taking care of the environment as it has a significant impact on the lives and welfare of animals. Zoos also teach families about the importance of conservation and animal care. Also, as soon as a child enters a zoo, his or her eyes widen and the wheels start turning. “Can I see that animal?” “Where does that animal come from?”  Kids are innately curious, allowing them to learn and take in their environment. Zoos especially encourage curiosity, which thus encourages learning and brain development!

What a wonderful and educational day had by all involved!
