We saw a lot of stuff.
We saw zebras. We saw crickets. We saw chicken eggs. We saw a lot of
more stuff. It was fun because we saw a lot of stuff. –Ella, grade 2
Tour – I went to the Distance Learning Room on a virtual tour. MSU
taught us about animal adaptation. Zebras don’t camouflage with its
environment but they do with other zebras. It’s confusing which one is
which. Ostriches have long legs to run away from predators. I think the
program was good. It was good because I learned about a lot of animals.
I also liked it because we got to draw our crickets in a place with an
adaptation to help them survive. ~Ben J. grade 3
At our adaptations
field trip we drew crickets. My cricket lived underwater. It had gills
My cricket had a shell to keep it safe from sharks. –Jackson, grade 2
Our field trip was
really cool. We observed a cricket that was really cool. We learned
about different animals that were really cool. We drew a cricket.
–Lucas, grade 2
Next we will again be participating in the
Christmas Tree Ship distance learning program through the Milwaukee
Public Museum. We will be “traveling” on Thursday, December 17,
2009 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The first graders have been doing
this for a number of years – Thanks, Mrs. Hagen, for finding the
money. ~Mr. Peabody
We went to
a virtual classroom. It had fake animals. A bear’s fur. A whole
squirrel’s body. We learned crickets rub their wings together.
–Colleen, grade 2
My favorite part
about the field trip is learning about adaptations. I learned that a
bear has a lot of fur. I had learned that a zebru blends in with other
zebrus. I learned that a stick bug looks like a stick and it blends in.
I drew a criket. –Sydnee, grade 2
At our field trip we
drew crickets. At our field trip we saw lots of bugs. We drew a cricket.
We had a napkin. ~Matthew, grade 2
On Thursday December 3rd
we had a virtual tour by MSU. We got to feel a peacock feather. The
peacock feather felt really cool. We got to see crickets. We got to draw
our own cricket. We got to see a poison dart frog and a lot more
animals. The virtual class was fun because we got to see a lot of
animals. ~Brendan, grade 3
We learned about
adaptations. A spotted frog’s spots are there because it has poison. The
cricit’s adaptation is its legs. The skunk’s adaptation is its smell.
–Alli, grade 2
My favorite part was
seeing all the animals. I like the zebru. I like the stick bug. I like
the ostrich. I like the poison frog. -Chloe, grade 2
