McKinley 4th Grade Goes to the Erie Zoo, Sort of.


Students in 4th Grade science classes took a trip to the Erie Zoo, in the McKinley Library. Students used the Distance Learning equipment from our technology center to view various mammals and reptiles housed at the zoo. Students were able to interact with experts at the zoo throughout the virtual field trip. What a great session!
