Field Trip to The Science Spectrum!

A couple weeks ago, we took a field trip to the Science Spectrum! We look at things that were magnetic, watched the way different things moved, saw different kinds of fish and reptiles, played with toys and went to a pirate treasure exhibit! The kids had a blast! Our class was split into 2 groups, so I only have the pictures of my group at the moment.

Watching the fan move the sand around

Seeing how rotating the fan makes the sand move in different ways



Making the legs move and spin the wheel

Thank you to all of the parents that went! That was by far the biggest group I've had go on a field trip with us and I know the kids love it when you are able to come with us. Thank you for all that you do! :)
