TAS First Graders Visits Thao Cam Vien Zoo

The American School (TAS) grade 1 class has been working hard in their classrooms learning about different environments and the animals that live in them. Grade 1 teachers Mr. Wallace and Mr. Ian decided it was the perfect opportunity for the students to see these creatures first-hand. We walked around the zoo observing animals such as spiky porcupines, massive snakes, long-necked giraffes, and white tigers. The students had a chance to feed the monkeys bananas and the goats stalk of grasses. When the class came back on campus, the excited students completed their “My Trip To The Zoo” booklet, which had them draw their favorite animal from the zoo, complete a checklist of all the animals that they saw or didn’t see, and write about their experience. It was a memorable trip filled with knowledge and excitement for our first graders!
