The May 7th and May 9th field trips will be held at Grayson Chesser’s farm on the way to Saxis. The May 20th and 24th field trips will be held at Brownsville Preserve.

The day will look something like this:

9:00/9:30 a.m. Students arrive

9:30 a.m. Welcome and introduction by VESLT

10 a.m. 1-2 mile nature walk with scavenger hunt

11:15 a.m. Activities – identifying bones and shells, art reflection/journaling based on the scavenger hunt

12 p.m. Lunch (please bring your lunch, we will have some snacks available for volunteers)

1 p.m. Departure

Ideally, they will have enough volunteers to co-lead a class of students or to break the classes into smaller groups. They are also looking for help leading the activities.

Second grade is learning about habitat and life cycle. Deer and butterflies are popular and often the classroom example.
