Spanish zoo field trip

All students that take Spanish, and who are in the Spanish Immersion program, went on a field trip to the Minnesota Zoo.

Why the zoo? The zoo hosts a Spanish language day where students from Highland Park Senior High and Great River School attend.

There were presentation boards set up around the zoo, and there were presentations as groups of students came around. The presentations were in Spanish and were presented on animals that they have at the zoo. The groups presenting where normally groups of two to three.

There was a specific set-up where you were meant to follow a path so you could see all the displays. You would need to follow a brochure that they gave you at the start of the trip. The students went in a circle and ultimately ended back up at the aquarium.

The whole field trip took 5 hours, and all students were back at school by 7th period. Overall, it was a fun day of learning, as students were able to walk around and explore outside of a typical classroom.

  1. I liked this concept. The students would have learned many things from this Spanish zoo trip. Learning Spanish from this kind of trips are very beneficial for students.
