Field Trip(s) Recap!

Three field trips down, one more to go!

#1: Hiking with my 5th graders!

It was the perfect day, a bit humid, but not enough so that you would notice it in the woods. It poured the day before, so it was a tad slippery on the way down. The kids and I had a blast all day - and the view from the top was amazing! They could not get over how it looked, one of my students kept mentioning how it didn't even look real!!

#2: The Zoo with my 3rd graders!

Another beautiful day, warm and humidity free, just the way I like them! We saw so many awesome animals - unfortunately my camera died halfway through the trip. It showed that it was fully charged the night before but apparently it was lying. Lesson learned, always charge your camera before every field trip!

#3: The Science Center with my 1st graders!
This was the last trip of the week, it was supposed to rain but did not. Yay for that!! The deer and the bears were a bit antisocial, so we only got pictures of their backs. The river otters had a blast doing tricks for us and we loved watching them! I think the bobcat enjoyed having his picture taken, he kept sneaking by us again and again!

The zoo and science center were back to back last week so I was just a wee bit exhausted last weekend. I had so much fun on all of these trips! I must give photo credits to my students - not many  brought cameras so I let them use my Powershot. I thought it would be cool to see the trips from their perspective. I think they take better pictures than I do!

Tomorrow we are off to see a play and then we end our week with an all day field day. It will have been a very busy last two weeks but I have loved every minute of it!

What was your favorite field trip this year?


  1. Lucky you, how are you able to go on so many field trips?

    For the Love of First Grade

    1. I teach intervention groups, grades 1,3,4 & 5, so I got the chance to chaperone all their trips! We have a theater nearby in the city, so we get to see their performances a lot, which is amazing!!

  2. Your pictures are beautiful! It looks like you truly enjoy field trips. :) My favorite is our yearly trip to the beach and the salt marshes.
