Year 3 Delighted and Amazed by Taronga Zoo Inhabitants

On Wednesday the 17th August, both Year 3 classes travelled to Taronga Zoo in Sydney.   Here are some tales of their adventures told by the students.

It felt like ages to get to Sydney. Some of us even fell asleep. The excursion was a huge blast!. One of our favourite animals was the komodo dragon. They even fed it dead mice. We got to pet a possum. It’s fur was as soft as a lamb. We also saw some meerkats fighting. We saw seals, tasmanian devils, pythons, possums, turkeys, tree frogs, a stick insect and heaps more! It was late when we got home. It was a memory none of us will ever forget. Oscar Zahra Addison (Year 3B)

Last week on Wednesday, August 17, 3W and 3B went on an excursion to Taronga Zoo. We went because we are learning about Living Things. It took a long time to get there and back. We watched movies on the bus and chatted with friends. Ruby (3W)

Some of things I enjoyed about our visit to the Zoo are the baby ringtailed possum, Maple, because she ate a flower so quickly and she was very small. I also liked the corroboree frogs because they were striped like tiny tigers and they could climb the walls. Avy (3W)

I learnt a lot of things at the Zoo. I didn’t know before we went to the Zoo that the Tasmanian devils have cancer. I also learnt that the corroboree frog is very small and that there are birds I didn’t even know about. Iles (3W)
