Owl's Hill Sanctuary Field Trip
A fun time was had by all today.
Ms. Helen was a great tour guide and talked to
us a lot about sooooo many of our Science standards.
We discussed habitats, seeds, roots, plants,
wildlife, predators, dwellings, food, natural resources,
and even more. We also hike a good little hike.
Enjoy the pictures!
We even spotted 2 turtles along the path!
Monkey Brains.....there's an official name, but
I wouldn't even begin to try to say it, much less spell it.
How many 3rd graders does it take to wrap
around a 400 year old oak tree? 13 plus the teacher.
Very large tree......
We even got a sneak peek at one of the
owls they are rehabilitating at Owl's Hill.
The kids were great and very well behaved.
Also, the parents were a huge help too! Thanks.
We had to do a goofy pic!
Almost forgot, Hunter, our class mascot, made the
trip with us as well! What fun!
