Congregation Beth Am’s Gesher preschool class held its 11th annual Zoozeum on May 8, with art, animals and cuteness on display. The youngsters spent the last four months on creating a “spectacular showcase” of animals, a project that enriched them culturally, scientifically, geographically and brought families together as the young students worked with their parents to create their giant paper mache lion, giraffe or zebra.

The students learned the different characteristics of animals and investigated their habitats. They did creative writing projects and completed art pieces of all different styles to reflect their animal, from Marc Chagall “stained glass” to construction paper cubism in the style of Pablo Picasso.

Each student, dressed in a t-shirt they decorated, gave a memorized presentation about their animal which included fun facts like pandas are born the size of a stick of butter; yaks sleep standing up; and ostriches have the smallest brain and forget easily.

Denise Neifeld, preschool director, said, “We set the standards high and they blow us away. When they go to kindergarten next year, they are going to lead the pack.”
