On Wednesday, December 14, students in Stacy Epstein's kindergarten class at Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center participated in a videoconference, where they engaged in a distance-learning program with the Indianapolis Zoo. Presented by a member of the zoo's educational staff, the program focused on the story of The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett and incorporated the curricular areas of science, social studies, language arts, geography and technology. “The students greatly enjoyed the opportunity to observe real polar bears and seals at the zoo and to learn more about these animals,” remarked Mrs. Epstein.
