San Antonio Zoo Virtual Visit!

Barkley-Ruiz 2nd graders received a virtual visit from San Antonio Zoo Education Coordinator Kathryn Takow on Tuesday, January 15. 

Takow talked to the students about how San Antonio zookeepers care for the animals in their zoo as well as educating the students about animals and their habitats to ensure healthy, happy lives.

This visit helped in kicking off a Project Based Learning unit that 2nd graders are completing about wild animals.

Library Fun!

This month, students are using their creativity, teamwork, and critical thinking to explore and research.

Students are using code to make animals dance, building with legos, doing research, building robots, using online Sketching, and doing code with Ozobots and LittleBits.
