3rd Grade - May 2021

Updated: Jan 17, 2022

This last month of school has been pretty busy for 3rd grade! We had 3 field trips in two weeks and it was really fun! We first went to Reiman gardens and enjoyed looking at the butterflies, playing in the children's garden, and looking at the cool plants. Our second field trip was on the train ride at the Boone Railway. We enjoyed the opportunity to get out of school and visit with each other while we saw some parts of Iowa we may not have seen before. Our third field trip was to the outdoor classroom at Don Williams Park. We saw several different kinds of snakes, a turtle, and got to pretend to be bears while we learned about hibernation. We also learned about how and why birds migrate and also about different kinds of soil. There were a couple of other schools there as well and the instructor for the soil group said our class was the only ones that knew about erosion and how it affects the soil.
