Field Trip#4: The Prospect Park Zoo

Greetings Parents, 

Last Friday, we went to the Prospect Park Zoo for our fourth field trip. We were shocked by the thunderstorms happened early in the morning. And thank you for our students’ SUPERPOWER, we arrived the zoo and had our trip with beautiful weather!


The Prospect Park Zoo is divided mainly into four parts – The Barn, The Animal Lifestyles, the Discovery Trail, and the Sea Lion Court. We first walked to the Barn… 🙂IMG_4230

When we were walking to the Barn, we found something super exciting! We were guessing if this is a real animal?IMG_4187

And here we arrived at the Barn!


We found many animals living in the Barn, including but not limited to cows 牛, sheep 羊, and pigs 豬, and one of the barn animals that we never learn in the classroom – ALPACA 羊駝!


We observed the lovely animals first, then we started to feed them! All the students were so excited feeding them! 


Check out the videos for the exciting moments!! 😀

After feeding the barn animals, we found an area for us to learn how to milk the cows…

The tortoises were all full, we walked to the Animal Styles Area and took a break. Well, Mr. Peacock was on our way though…IMG_4267

We found some fishes and sea animals there.


And we found an animal that we were so familiar with – the Monkeys (猴子).


We were fully charged after taking a relaxing break, it’s time to move on to the sea lion show!


It’s an excellent field trip right? Next week we are going to the New York Historical Society!
