BREEZY POINT — First grade students at Eagle View Elementary School were treated to a visit by Mr. Fab, which stands for mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians and birds.

Chuck Eggert, fifth grade science teacher, took time out of his day with his middle schoolers to share his wealth of knowledge about the classifications of animals with first grade students as a way to introduce a science unit on animals and habitats.

Eggert presents animals in a fun way, promoting how interesting they are and how unique each classification is. He promotes a positive attitude toward animals and helps young learners see that they are not something to be afraid of.

He also talks about animal etiquette, endangered and protected animals, and respectfully discusses the benefits of hunting in a legal fashion to local animal populations.
