The Wild Roadshow


This exciting workshop involved the showing and handling of exotic animals such as Snake, Gecko, Tarantula, Giant Snail, Giant Millipede, Giant Cockroach, and Scorpion. Some of our children are currently studying rain forest, it really helped them looking at different animals and learning about their habitat.
