Plan a field trip to the Zoo with your language students and discover fascinating facts about Zoo animals, all in the language of the day. Presenting upper level language students use music, costumes, and props to interpret the animal exhibits throughout the Zoo. Observer students each receive a “passport” which gets stamped after their participation at each station. All days are geared toward language students in grades 6-12 and elementary immersion students.
