Last month I posted pictures of the caterpillars and chrysalis’s. They soon emerged as beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. We released them one day, and in the process were able to get pictures with them as we let them go. We had such fun holding them and were a little sad to have to say good bye.
Here are some pictures of what we got to do on Tabloid day. Students played games or did activities such as painting and eating a freezie (such hardships 🙂 ) for points, and then they could buy candy from the candy bar with their points.
Forte Whyte Alive
Today’s field trip was a lot of fun. We spent a lot of time outside in nature, and were happy for a nice hot day. Here are a few of the pictures I took. We had divided into smaller groups with kids from all the grade 1 classes, so I was not able to take pictures of all those in our class.
We walked over the board walk and went critter dipping.
Can you find the turtle in the picture above?
saw an owl that was alive, and then several other animals that were fortunately not alive anymore.
We watched some bees working in their hive, and even saw where they stored their honey, as the sides of their hive was a clear plexiglass. We then had lunch inside.
After lunch we went on a scavenger hunt and found many cool things in nature.
We then said good bye and went home.
Thank you to all the volunteers who came on the field trip.
It was so nice that you could come and share the day with us.
That is all for this year. Thank you for taking a look at the blog and sharing in our grade 1 experience. Please email me any ideas or suggestions you may have about the blog. Please let me know if the blog was useful to you or not. I am sad to see this year coming to an end, it has been a great year! I just want to say THANK YOU to all the parents who have shared their time and energy with us this year as well. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and you have made all our class parties, craft times, fun lunches and field trips possible.
Thank you so much for investing in your child this year.
Have a wonderful summer,
