We are learning about our community and the people who help us. We have already visited the fire station, had the ambulance drive in and a police officer came and told us all about his work. In this context we’ve also looked at books and videos about veterinarians. We learnt how they care for the animals at the zoo, at a farm and of course for our furry friends at home. We children do know a lot about our pets. We know what they eat, how we care for their fur, how we exercise them and how to keep them safe so we don’t have to go to the vet too often. Caring Casey is looking after her animals too.
Mandy brought in her guinea pigs and we’ve had a closer look at these little creatures. We talked about caring for their long fur, giving them healthy vegetables and how they keep their claws and teeth healthy. On first sight they seemed like most of our other pets – a mouth, two ears, two eyes, four legs and a …..wait a minute. Something is missing!
Did you know that Guinea Pigs have no tail???
