Janey’s research animal is the otter.


Aaron’s research animal is the polar bear.


Luke’s research animal is the Andean bear.


Lucy’s research animal is the kangaroo.


The first-grade classes at Wilmington Christian Academy held a “Zoo Night” event this week, divided into two activities. To start, each child showcased their research animal and their hand-made habitat as zoo keepers. Later, the zoo was closed and a carnival opened. For the carnival, each student made an educational game for people to play for a donation. All money raised will go to the Clinton County Humane Society, said a spokesperson. In the photo foreground are teacher Terri Streber and student Korynn, whose research animal is the flamingo. For more photos, visit wnewsj.com.
