Galvez Primary School first-graders visited the Global Wildlife Center on April 16.

Prior to the trip, the students studied animal habitats and how animals benefit from their environment. The students took a safari wagon tour and fed everal animals, teacher Ashley Whitcomb said.

On the field trip, students were excited to tell the teachers how the animals were benefiting from the environment, she said.

“One student said, ‘Mrs. Whitcomb, these animals get a lot of help in their home because they get a lot of food from us,’ ” she said. “Makes us teachers at Galvez Primary very happy when the students talk about learning outside of the classroom.”
