The students learned that a zoo is a place where all types of animals are displayed for the public to see. Especially animals that they would never get the chance to observe otherwise. We also talked about how zoos try hard to keep animals in enclosures that replicate their natural habitat because, the animals seem to do much better when they are in their natural environment. We discovered that zoos create educational programs and tours in order to provide an educational opportunity for everyone. A lot of them even have petting zoos where adults and children are allowed a close-up look of the animals and their babies. We learned about tigers, lions, monkeys, elephants, giraffes, penguins, bears etc.
