Whipsnade Zoo

To start our new topic of plants and animals we went on a school trip to Whipsnade Zoo. We went there to look at the different habitats that different animals need. We wandered around the zoo into different continents and found the animals that were native to that habitat and environment. In Africa we found the lions and cheetahs, in Asia we found the elephants and in Europe we saw the lynx. We also had a habitat workshop all about habitats from one of the zookeepers. She taught us about the equator and how the hotter regions are closer to the equator and further away from it are the colder regions. In the workshop we had to identify different animals by looking at clues and using real life replicas of animal skulls!
