Field Trip Memories


We had so much fun learning and observing living and non-living things during our class trip to Hemlock Crossing Nature Center this week.  We observed birds flying and chirping, saw a beaver lodge and watched tadpoles and water beetles swimming.  We saw plant life and creatures in meadows and wetlands. Our five senses were very busy all morning long.  

Thank you, thank you to Mr. Kniceley, Mrs. Scholten, Mrs. Daley, Mrs. Shaffer, Mrs. Parrish and Mrs. Kinsman for joining us in learning. I am so glad that many other parents and grandparents were able to join us for a picnic lunch at Hager Park.  What a fun day…even though it was a bit cold.

Enjoy the video that showcases our memories.

Please check tonight……

Our field trip today at Hemlock Nature Center was AWESOME!! (even if it did rain at the end)  However, with our day of nature always comes those little critters we need to mindful of.  Ticks!  

As a staff we always give the good once over to look for any little hitchhikers.  However,  these little “friends” love to find spots to hide out that we aren’t allowed to search.  So maybe tonight is a bath night and an extensive once over would be helpful for Tick safety. I have attached the link from the CDC on Ticks.  Please let me know if you have any questions OR if you did see any hitchhikers (Ticks).
