Zoo mobile will visit Mother Goose School this month and share with the children some of their favorite child-friendly reptiles and mammals.

“Animals” is the theme of the month for April at Mother Goose School. Children will participate in activities and crafts that reflect different animal traits. The teachers will provide opportunities to sort, categorize, compare and contrast different animals.

Topics may include warm-blooded versus cold-blooded animals, a comparison of what herbivores, carnivores and omnivores eat, how animals use camouflage to hide from their predators and animal habitats - desert, ocean, rainforest, savanna, or the back yard. Younger children will learn a thing or two about farm animals and what they provide. Finger plays and rhymes that relate to this theme will also be incorporated.

The Zoo Mobile will visit Mother Goose School this month and share with the children some of their favorite child-friendly reptiles and mammals. The children will be allowed to touch, feel and learn directly about these reptiles and mammals that come from habitats around the world.

Mother Goose School also encourages families to visit the Smith’s Mt. St. Helena Trout Farm, Audubon Canyon Ranch, Muir Woods, the San Francisco Zoo, the Academy of Sciences, Berkeley’s Tilden Park and the various tide pools along the Northern California seashore. Families are also encouraged to take nature walks and have discussions about animals and how they have adapted to city environment.

Mother Goose School is also looking forward to May’s Multicultural theme, where students will be performing musical numbers for their parents. The children are practicing music and movement from Mexico, North America, France, Germany, Israel, Australia, Japan and more. Parents are invited to share traditional ethnic foods and stories throughout the month with their child’s class.
