Trinity Regional Students Participate in Video Conference with Minnesota Zoo
Posted on 02/11/2016

The Fourth Grade at Trinity Regional School in East Northport took part in a video conference at our school in November. We video conferences with The Minnesota Zoo. The program was called "Zoo Food for Thought." “Zoo Food for Thought” is designed to give students a snapshot of the world of “wild eats” from herbivore habits to carnivore cunning. The program also explores the challenge of making sure animals in zoos receive all the nutrition they need, just as they would from their food webs in the wild. Lastly, “Zoo Food for Thought” shows how zoos avoid clogging landfills by helping their animal and food waste compost naturally without ever leaving Zoo grounds. The students answered questions from the presenter and were able to see different animals at the zoo in their habitats. It was an exciting video conference and the students thoroughly enjoyed it.
