The Avalon kindergarten, first grade and second grade classes went on a field trip last Thursday to a nature center.
The students learned about reptiles and their habitats, and see the species first hand.
According to Second Grader Alessandro DeMarchi, the best part was when the students could pet a snake. They also saw toads, turtles and geese.
Additionally, teacher Istvan Teleki explained another reason for the field trip was to get the kids out of the classroom and excited about something.
While the kids were very excited about all the animals they saw, getting to pet a snake came above it all for most of them.
They spent a half-day at the center and were back at Avalon in time for lunch.
