Fourth graders do research at Roger Williams Zoo

Fourth graders visited the Roger Williams Zoo in Providence as part of a persuasive writing unit about whether animals should be in zoos. Students read news articles that showed both perspectives and used the zoo visit to engage in an educational program to learn more about this topic. Fourth graders also had the opportunity to tour the animal exhibits as part of their research. They returned to school and started to formulate arguments for their essay, which they will be working on in class.
