“Zoo in the Classroom" is a program that Mrs. Geist, AP Environmental Science, Environmental Science and Zoology teacher at Canon-McMillan High School, developed where her high school students teach second graders throughout the district about the animals in her classroom. Click here to listen to Mrs. Geist herself explain it!
The second group of second graders from Muse Elementary got to experience it today. Several second graders from the other elementary schools have already experienced this program. Borland Manor Elementary is the last group to visit next week. Mrs. Geist even created a virtual experience for any second graders that could not attend and posted it to YouTube.
