When planning for a field trip, Heidi and I truly believe that it has to either support, enhance and/or celebrate the learning going on in the classroom. In this sense, we do not plan field trips unless they are relevant to the learning going on.
|What do you see?|
|Students engaged in an Aquarium Scavenger Hunt using the riddles they|
came up with in class as clues!
|"What kind of shark is this? It's not a great white because it's not as|
big as a great white shark." - T.B.
|"I see the sharks' gills and big teeth!" - E.S.|
|"The stingray has a long stinger and uses its flaps to swim in the|
water. How come some are big and some are small?" - R.K.
|The diver was not only giving away high 5's, but he was also feeding|
|The jellyfish were most certainly the highlight of the trip!|
|"I see all the tentacles and I wonder how they change colour|
and swim with no eyes?" - C.S.
|"The starfish have their mouths underneath but they have no eyes.|
I wonder how they stick on the glass?" - V.D.
|Students even got to touch Horseshoe crabs and see what they feel like.|
|Do you see the sea horse? Do you see the pacific kelp?|
