Also BEES went for Erasmus trip to ZOO in Opole with the main aim to find the answer on their mind map question. DO CATS LIVE IN A ZOO?
Answer to this question wasn`t as obvious as we, adults, think. That is because Bees havent got the slightest idea about wild cats…
Walking from one stall to another Bees tried to find arguments for the proof that animal IS or IS NOT a CAT. Cat`s features (which were previously discovered) were very helpful. Children were checking if animals they evaluate have: whiskers, tail, fur, four paws ended with claws… Every Bee already knows that cats have no humps, no feathers, flippers or hoofs. Even though teachers suggested that, cat is not the same as camel, donkey or owl…
With a great amazement Bees watched medical training of sea lions – and tricks their trainer tought animals to prepare them for serious medical checking one day…
Also Mr Gorilla (who is not a cat for sure) stole children`s hearts – he crunched cucumbers, apples and carrots, perfectly opened the bottle with water, giving children the best example of healthy nutrition.
Let`s go back to the topic of cats living in ZOO. Suprisingly, on one of lanes and in one of stalls children noticed animals which went with description of cats! But, are those two cats the only cats in the ZOO?
A moment after, Bees saw an animal which was certainly not a pet, but still show all cats` features. From information board they discovered that it is a CHEETAH. Its` picture and name was in our discovery book! After long discussion children stated that there are animals called cats but they don`t seem to be tamed, cause we cant meet them in homes or on the street. Mr Cheetah was proudly posing, while children were changing cat`s scheme into cheetah…
You ask what cats did Bees find? They found a cat called SERVAL (by scientist)
From the left to right side there was SNOW LEOPARD walking. Her colleague was also kindly posing to drawing metamorphosis.
PUMAs were also amazing. There behaved as real models on catwalk.
Another cat, called JAGUARUNDI was hiding in the deep part of his pen. Oh, so many letters in his name, like in any other cat species.
While Bees were having their lunch, a big LION was watching at them – luckily he was just a sculpture. When children were searching a way back to the entrance on the map, they didnt even noticed a family of little cheetahs be all eyes on them and waving happily with their tails…
Cats are amazing No matter if they are brown, black or grey. If they are big or small. if they live in our houses, in the junle or in the zoo. Even Green Cat from Icelandic Saga is exceptional. As much as our fabulous adventure in ZOO!
