Making Art and Building Connections

On Wednesday, November 19th, Zoo-Mates mentors and mentees met at the kids' school for another afternoon of fun. A visitor from the Cincinnati Art Museum taught us to make art prints and we imagined all kinds of creative designs!

Wednesday at the Zoo

Our first Zoo outing gave us the chance to get to know our partner and to explore the Zoo on a warm fall afternoon!

We started the day by watching a 4D movie about animals in the wild. The seats shook us, poked us, splashed water on us, and gave us a thrill!

Lucy the Bearcat inspired school spirit in the UC students!

The Moose Team set out on an adventure.

Building team spirit.

The Whales show us some energy!

Happy face on a happy day.

Who has longer tongues -- the Giraffe Team or real giraffes?

Big smiles from Team Toucan!

Visiting Mr. Rhino.

Where are we?!

Mentor bonding.

It was a perfect autumn day!
