Our Field Trips
Field trips are a way for us to extend our classroom learning. They allow students to learn and review important concepts in a real-world setting. Stay tuned as I post information about upcoming field trips.
October 21, 2009 - American Museum of Natural History
The third grade is going to the AMNH to visit their current special exhibition Frogs, A Chorus of Colors. We recently acquired two tadpoles to join the third grade menagerie. We are very excited to observe how our tadpoles will grow into frogs over the coming months. This trip will help us learn more about the amphibians we have in our classroom. At the museum, we will observe many unusual frog species including the eyelash leaf frog, the Chinese gliding frog, and the ornate horned frog, just to name a few. We will also practice our research skills reading the informational texts around the museum to learn about these fascinating creatures.
Update: The trip was a blast - you can read about it on our Frog Blog. To see photos from the trip, click here.
