Field Trip Awesome

I took my kids on a field trip to a local nature outreach center. My kids visited three different ecosystems -- a forest, a meadow, and a pond -- and learned about the different adaptations that animals have in order to survive in their environments.

I thought the field trip was great. My outdoors-challenged students thought otherwise. Here are some of their comments throughout the day:

"Yo, I be thirsty. Where's the water fountain?"

"I just tripped over two rocks. If I trip over another one, I'm suing."

"Ewwww, there's a fly." "Oh my god!" "That jawn tryin' to land on me!"

"Where the frogs?" "They got 'em at Petco."

"Do we got an elevator or escalator comin' up this hill?" "Can I call a cab?"
