Jewish Academy of Orlando students visit the Brevard Zoo


Jewish Academy of Orlando first graders ride the train at the Brevard Zoo.

There is a new "animal" in town and it is called "genus jewishacademius." This unique species has a love of learning and a strong connection to its Jewish heritage.

In all seriousness, the first grade students at the Jewish Academy of Orlando have been studying all about animals and animal classifications. As a culminating activity, they had an incredible visit to the Brevard Zoo! The students were able to interact, touch, and feed real animals. The "animalia" presentation and the train ride allowed the students to get an even closer look at some of the animals. At the Jewish Academy of Orlando, we believe in "learning through doing" and the students' trip to the zoo was just another example of experimental learning, which takes place daily at the Jewish Academy!

The students really had a great day at the zoo! They had fun and learned a lot in the process.
