Zoo field trip

Filed under: Adventure,Kids,Learning — by Alison @ 3:33 pm

H’s preschool class had a field trip to the zoo this week. His preschool is held in the basement of a church and they needed access to the kitchen and parking lot during class time, so it was decided that taking everyone out would be a better plan. We all met at the entrance to the zoo, and the kids were handed identifying badges to wear. Normally, in the class of 22 there are 11 parents present. For the field trip there were 17 preschoolers, 3 babies and 18 adults. Needless to say, we didn’t lose any kids.

The best part of the trip was seeing the baby lion cubs. They’re only 3 months old and have just started exploring their exhibit area.


One was a bit curious about us.

Or just baffled by the glass.

All four of the cubs, checked out the window and then wandered away to play. While the cubs were near the window, their mother prowled near by. The zoo staff is keeping visitors about 6 feet away from the glass, to help comfort the mother.

The zoo trip ended with a small circle time, including a story.


 And then a group trip to the carousel.





I’m planning another trip to watch those baby cubs again soon. Or maybe I’ll just watch the videos



  1. The cubs are so cute!
