Minnesota Zoo helps students learn about animals in other languages
from Pioneer Press
More than 500 students from Minneapolis' Yinghua Academy poured into the Minnesota Zoo, excited to put their budding Chinese language skills to use discussing animals from snow monkeys to starfish. Sixth-graders such as Katherine St. Martin-Norburg of St. Paul set up presentations in which their classmates could play a game or hear a song developed by students about one of the zoo's animals. The visit was part of the zoo's popular World Language Days, which draw thousands of students each February to learn about animals in languages such as Spanish, Japanese and American Sign Language.
