Field Trip at Ogden Nature Center Sept 2008
Most of the kids here who went to field trip had their first school bus ride. One of them is Michelle. They had fun inside the bus. I happened to be there as the parent volunteer to capture the moments of Mich’s first school field trip. Inside the bus, the kids were singing “The Wheels of the Bus”.
It was hot out in the field. Some kids were complaining of getting tired and thirsty. Kids get to listen to the tour guide explaining the ecosystem, different animals in the wild, how they thrive in such environment. They also played a hiding game so they could feel how animals get to camouflage themselves when enemies are watching. They were also toured to see some big birds like owls and eagles.
It was a different learning experience for these little ones and it was just so amazing to hear how they reason when asked about what they know and think about nature.
