Homeschooling Field Trip: Penguins at Woodland Park Zoo

Are you learning about animals right now or do you want to?  If you can’t get to the zoo (and who can most days).  Visit these great virtual zoos online.  Our favorite was the Richmond Cheetah Cam –log on at night and watch them sleep (the cubs are adorable!).
