On the 15th November Fourth Class were invited to St. Mary's School for a very fun workshop with Dave's Jungle. At St. Mary's we saw many different animals including a tarantula, a rat snake, and an Alligator Snapping Turtle. We would like to thank St. Mary's for this great opportunity!
Dave explained how the animals hunt, how they perceive the world, how they use their senses, what they eat, how they eat and how they catch their prey. Fourth Class then have the unique experience of handling and touching crocodiles, tarantulas, snakes and large lizards.
