Virtual Field Trip

Students in Mrs. Elaine Comer’s 2nd grade and Miss Heather Leyhan’s 4th grade recently participated in a Virtual Field Trip to the very cold and snowy Buffalo Zoo.  Organized by Mrs. Ellen Corcoran, technology coordinator and teacher, using the school’s teleconferencing equipment, the students were able to interact with a representative of the zoo.  They saw and learned about the characteristics, adaptations, and senses of lizards, arctic foxes, sea lions, gorillas, capybaras, Siberian tigers, and polar bears.  The students learned so much as they were able to ask and answer questions of the zoo representative throughout the presentation.
