•                                                                  Assignment for the week of April 6-10

    This week we would like your child to take a virtual trip to the San Diego Zoo. Please have them explore the different animals and create a circle map of the animals they see.  They will also go on a scavenger hunt and the sheet will be posted on dojo. Their final assignment will be to choose their favorite animal at the zoo and write some facts about that animal. Please include a picture of the animal as well. The picture can be drawn, cut from a magazine or printed from the computer. We are asking that you submit circle map, answers to the scavenger hunt and facts about their favorite animal on Friday April 10.
