During the tour the students were taught the value of wildlife conservation and education through experience. The effectiveness of touch as a teaching tool is evident every day at Global Wildlife Center. The students were able to wiggle a camel's hump, rub the giraffe's eighteen inch tongue, and feel the wooly fur of bison. In addition to the wildlife tour, students viewed an informative video and gather additional information about the endangered species.
The staff of MMS would like to thank the various supporters such as the Magnolia Alumni Association, Target, and fund raiser participates for understanding the need for our students to broaden their interests into a different career choice. Also, a special thanks to Ms. Calvin for organizing and writing the grants for this project!
