On January 12th the Grade 6s had an opportunity to get up close with some interesting critters from Prairie Exotics. The students are currently studying the animal kingdom in science and this was a great way for them to see first hand the wonderful variety of living things. There were snakes , geckos, frogs, spiders and a bearded dragon, all from various parts of the world. The students learned about how these animals are adapted to survive in their natural environment and the care that they require. After the presentation was concluded the students had a chance to get personal and touch some of these critters! What a great way to explore our world without having to take a trip!
