Well, my Spring Break is almost to an end. I am rested and looking forward to returning to school on Monday. My students and I will spend the remainder of the school year on a mad dash toward May 14..... the date of the AP Biology exam! I will end this week with the last of the photos from our zoo trip. Next week, I will be back to posting about what is going on in the biology/chemistry classroom.
One of the newest areas in our zoo is called "Northwest Passage." This area houses the polar bears, elk, wolves, etc. But one of the most amazing sections is the Grizzly Bear enclosure. First of the all, the area in which they can run and play is huge. It starts with a huge waterfall at one end, and a stream/river runs the entire length. The stream is stocked with live fish! The bears spend much of their time playing in the water and fishing! It is amazing to watch as they stalk and catch a fish. I hope you enjoy these pictures.
