We had a fantastic day at Kirkley Hall. Our guide, Mark, was a fountain of knowledge. He led us around a forest trek, helped us handle guinea pigs and rabbits, as well as giving us a full tour of the zoological gardens. We went on the hunt for Australian animals, and weren't disappointed. We spotted kookaburras, lizards, and of course wallabies. We were even fortunate enough to see a baby joey, still in his mum's pouch!
We are going to bring all of these new experiences back into the classroom to enhance our topic and science work.
