Field Trip

to Guana River State Park.

The purpose of this field trip, was to get the students involved in the surroundings of God’s creation.  I wanted them to take the time to look, listen, feel, and just have fun.  There is a lot they can learn when we use God’s world as our classroom.  🙂

The day was sunny, very windy, and a little on the chilly side, but the students were able to find most of what was on their list to look for.    If you are interested in getting a copy of the worksheet, please let me know and I’ll email it to you.

The most interesting things they found were beached Horseshoe Crabs,  Pygmy Rattlesnake, and young Bald Eagle.   Three of us out of ten saw the Bald Eagle, because we took the time to walk slowly and look around on the way back to the van.

“But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you.  Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; And let the fish of the sea declare to you.  Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of al mankind?”  Job 12: 7-10

  1. I love how you did the slide show. I am going to have to look into that!
    Great field trip! I am not sure about the snake part, but the bald eagle and horseshoe crabs are cool. We see bald eagles all the time now. It is very cool. When I was a kid it was a special treat to see a bald eagle. It is great to see them making such a comeback.

  2. Cool! Your slideshow thingy was neat…was the the WordPress new little gadget? I like it!
    I am enjoying my field trip today.

  3. I’d love to get a copy of the field trip worksheet! Thanks for this great idea!

  4. Thank you for the links…. however the “permission slip” link is the same as the “What to Bring”. Perhaps you can fix it sometime. =)
