Animal Talks

By Brian Gonzaga

On Wednesday, March 6th, ONW’s very own Student Naturalist class held their first “Animal Talks” with the students of Meadow Lane Elementary.

Some people may remember a group of students bringing in boxes in elementary school and being surprised and in awe as they saw about seven different animals such as lizards and snakes and rodents.

However, for the kids of Meadow Lane Elementary, our Student Naturalist teacher, Justin Young, wanted to do something more. He began wrangling the idea of how he could continue the tradition of educating young minds using amazing and interesting animals, but also make it different from past years by allowing the kids to have a wider variety of animals. He even wanted to show them some animals such as Burmese Pythons, Tegus, American Alligator, and so much more.

Personally, for a first-time event and the first of its kind, and for a student who has partaken in these “Animal Talks” in the past, I can guarantee that the tradition will live on and will become a brand new tradition for the Student Naturalist class here at Olathe Northwest.
