"The content went perfect with the Project Based Learning we were about to implement. It really got the students pumped up about their project. It follows perfectly with SC standards and my students loved it. They are still talking about it a week later. It went perfectly with the standards and kept the students engaged. It fired them up about the PBL we were starting and worked perfectly as an entry level event. It gave them base knowledge they are using for the project."
"I loved when she went out to the exhibit. Students are making an exhibit so they gained a lot of knowledge about how to make it work for class 1 animals. It also helped them realize that zookeepers do have to enter exhibits for more than just feeding that cleaning is also necessary."
"The program pumped them up. They were ecstatic about starting their project."
"Our instructor, Ren, was amazing! Very knowledgeable and kept it flowing for my students. I appreciated the quality of the content and the enthusiasm of the instructor."
"The students enjoyed seeing the live animals."
"We were so engaged and interested that we didn't want the program to end."
"I really enjoyed learning about the different animals. I learned new vocabulary and facts about the various animal groups. Supplemented what I already knew so I can better teach my students."
"I thought the program was fantastic. The program followed our standards and it was a great introduction for my students. The presenter did a wonderful job connecting the material to the students and engaging the students by connecting the material to their interests. The presenter answered the students questions thoroughly. She provided specific feedback to my students in regards to their answers and if a student answered incorrectly, she encouraged them and led them to the correct answer or thanked them and gave them feedback about why their answer was on the right track, but not correct."
"I liked the "hands on" and real world exposure to the animals and learning. It brought the content to life for my students."
