Virtual Visit to Australia Zoo

Today, our Ukrainian classes at Assumption virtually visited the Australia Zoo and took part in an “Escape Room”.  Our younger classes enjoyed traveling down under with their Zoopark passports, stamping them at each animal that we saw.  They learned the names of different animals in Ukrainian to help them with their visit. Each student received a little souvenir animal from the Mrs. Kukuruza gift shop and took their photos at the Zoo photo booth.  Our 3rd & 4th graders experienced an Escape Room in the Assumption Library.  In order to “escape” and win, they had to figure out a series of 7 clues – all using what they learned this past year in Ukrainian class.  Father Ivan was one of our special clues.
His clue:  “All Hearts Beat In Ukrainian. Some would say that this person is the “Tato” of our parish family.  Find that person and tell them you love them – in Ukrainian!” Father then gave the team their next clue.  The students enjoyed looking for their clues by assembling a Tryzub puzzle, putting the Ukrainian alphabet in order, popping balloons and other challenges to find their team’s prizes.  It was a super fun day for our young Assumption Students!
