Room 8's visit to the Auckland Zoo

On Wednesday the 1st of April Room 8 at Glenbrae School went to the Auckland Zoo. We had a wonderful day out. Here we are seen feeding the giraffe. It was so much fun. In the picture, this is Samuel and Siupeli waiting their turn to feed the giraffe. We were all given a piece of celery because giraffes love eating vegetables. They are herbivores and only eat plants. At the zoo we also got to explore and visit other animals. We enjoyed watching the elephants have a bath, the hippos swimming under water, listening to the birds chirping and especially looking at the baby cheetahs. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. If ever you get a chance to visit the Auckland Zoo, you should in the near future.
