Last week, the Montessorians at Waverley Montessori Preschool enjoyed an incursion with the Wild Action Zoo.
The excited children held and petted strange, spiky and smooth new creatures, as well as a number of dangerous animals including an alligator! There were also a few aquatic animals in water tanks such as sharks and seahorses. A crustacean which thrilled the children was the crab with its long and sharp-looking claws.
One of the highlights of the day was the cute fairy penguin which received a lot of attention from the children. Every Montessorian had a turn petting its smooth yet slightly oily feathers.
Everyone really had a turn at getting involved with petting and holding the animals. We learnt a lot about the different types of animals that day and their favourite food.
I’ll leave it at that as there are so many pictures that tell the story of how much the children enjoyed the day!
