The kiddos had so much fun on our community field trip of downtown Grand Rapids! I'm not sure if the other bus patrons were in love with all of the kids on the bus, but they were so respectful. It was also hilarious to see them encounter pay phones! Here are a few perks of our day.

This week for environmental science, the students went on a hint for pollinators! We found a lot of bees and butterflies, plus some cool grasshoppers.

I'm This week the students had a ton of fun making nature bracelets outside in the prairie. We discussed what organisms need to survive and then the students picked a particular organism and found items in the prairie that it would need. They were so beautiful!

The worst thing for students at an Environmental Science school is rain. However, we made the most of it and did a fun activity about respect. The students emptied a toothpaste tube and were given the instructions to try and get all the toothpaste back inside with a paper clip. When they couldn't accomplish the task, we connected it to how we have a difficult time taking back disrespectful words after we say them. We brainstormed what we could do instead of saying hurtful words and the students had a great deal of ideas!

Our first day was a success! It always seems to go in a bit of a blur, but the kids did a great job. We were able to go to Environmental Science with Miss Holly and make some salsa...it was delicious! We also had a chance to create our own set of classroom rules. I can't wait to see what tomorrow holds.
