Did you know that  a millipede can grow as long as 12 inches? That is one of many things  2nd grade students  learned as they enjoyed a visit from the Ft. Wayne Zoo on Friday, November 1st.  They were taken on a virtual journey to five continents, met 5 animals from different continents, and found clues to discover what it takes to save our planet.  They saw a dingo from Australia, a guinea pig from  South America,  a rat ( rodent) from Asia , a millipede from  Africa , and a parrot from   Africa.  Kids worked together to solve the puzzle: “ Each one of you”  has a part to do to help save our planet.  Thanks to Dekko for bringing the zoo to us!
