Middle School Students Visit the Central Park Zoo
The Bentley House students in the EAL Program went to the Central Park Zoo to participate in a day of learning and service.
Pupils were given a tour of the zoo, were introduced to a special snake, and later were taught how to interact with visitors. They then spent time working with visitors providing information, and taking part in games with visitors of all ages.
Students were delighted by the show of the sea lions, Charlie and April, who both performed at feeding time. Popular favorites were the snow leopard and the penguins. It was a wonderful day of community building in New York City.
