The bake sale was a huge success and the children got their field trip! Some, like Jordan, are overly ecstatic about being at the newly built zoo. She's unable to stop the bubble of excitement and chatters on and on about all the animals she plans to see!
Geeta on the other hand is a tad nervous. She's never been around so many animals. And the sounds of roaring lions, and the cry of birds scare her a bit.
Lola thinks the air smells great. It smells of the "Wild"! Geeta isn't so sure. She thinks it smells of animal dung, and it stinks really bad.
Angel is just excited that Principle Corbin has allowed them to break up into groups, so that they can see more of the animals before it's time to leave.
They all will meet up at the aquarium before heading back to school for the end of the day.
Becca couldn't wait to come to the zoo. But now, actually being here, seeing the animals in cages. She thinks that zoos aren't that great of a place to be, at least not for the animals.
The day comes to a close all to fast, but all the students are excited about the aquarium and all the fish that await them inside.
Becca is amazed at the large tuna. She had no idea that tuna were so huge. And even more amazed that they can get such a large fish into such a tiny can!
Natalie asks their tour guide so many questions. Like, why don't any of the larger fish attack the smaller ones?
He explains that they only use fish that get along with each other in the wild. If they were to eat each other, then they wouldn't have such a lovely aquarium.
Tony doesn't like the sound of that. He was really hoping to see some fish fight!
Geeta is happy that they all get along. Happy fish make her happy! Kira and Jordan think that she's just a tad bit too cheery over the fish.
Tynisha decides to get a picture for the wall of field trips back at school.
Angel ends the trip by pouring laundry soap into the small dolphin fountain at the aquarium. Tynisha is not amused and makes note to have a chat with his mother. They other kids, as well as their tour guide, find the prank amusing.
I didn't want to do the typical update that I do with my elementary kids. I knew if I did, then I wouldn't have much of an update, if any. Plus, I really wanted to play with the zoo I downloaded. I need to get back in and fix a few things, since some didn't make it back over with my reinstalling/downloading of many items.
I think the field trip turned out pretty well. Maybe I'll do it again in the future. We'll see. I do know the kids enjoyed themselves. They really loved the fish! I think it was the highlight of the trip!
