Guagalpe River Field Trip

We had a great time on our Fish Fanatics field trip!

Our class went through 4 stations:
Biomonitoring - Checking on the health of the river by collecting aquatic insects at the river bank.

Obstacle Course - the kids run through the obstacles facing salmon and trout as they try to get from the river to the ocean and back.

First Impressions - making fish prints on paper to learn the anatomy of the fish.

Redd Bed - An experiment with sorting pebbles and making clay eggs to learn what environment is best for a salmonid to lay her eggs.

100th Day!

The 100th Day was lots of fun. My favorite activity is writing what we will be like when we are 100 years old. Then we make an adorable art project. You've got to stop in to check these out in person if you get a chance. The kids favorite activity was making a necklace with 100 Fruit Loops and I was told I was THE BEST TEACHER EVER!

Teddy Bear Day

Teddy Bear Day was a big hit. We read books about teddy bears, measured our bears with unifix cubes, wrote a class book introducing our bears, graphed gummy bears colors, and even wrote a fictional story about our bears coming to life! It was a fun but educational day!
