South Elementary School first graders took a walk on the wild side Tuesday at the Scottsbluff Riverside Zoo to look at animals and participate in a hands-on educational workshop.

The annual trip occurs each Spring and ties into Nebraska science standards where students are tasked with matching animals to their habitats.

"We study animal adaptations and physical characteristics that help them survive in the wild during the school year," First grade teacher Carrie Pilger said. "The Riverside Zoo has an excellent workshop on habitats and what animals need in that habitat to survive."
