Zoo Scientific Inquiry
Mrs. Malone's & Miss Johnson's 4th Grade classrooms had the great opportunity to participate in the program "Zoo Scientific Inquiry", put together by the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. (This program was completely free for Holy Cross!). For a total of 9 weeks (October-December), a zoo employee came to both classrooms to teach special lessons on habitats, ecosystems, animal adaptions, and more!
During this program, the students were also loaned giant African millipedes to take care of in the classroom for about 4 weeks. The program finished with a field trip to the zoo for some hands-on learning and a scavenger hunt in the tropical rain forest. The students had a wonderful time learning about God’s awesome creation!
