A Petting Zoo Came To Visit Schechter Queens

In honor of Parshat Noach, a petting zoo came to visit Schechter Queens. The children had so much fun petting and feeding the goats, bunnies, and Coco the horse. It really tickled as the animals licked up all the yummy food. Each class had an opportunity to have a fun and bumpy hay ride. It was so wonderful to see real animals just as they were learning about the animals that went into Noach’s ark.
