Today was our second field trip of the year to Amazement Square in Lynchburg and it was truly AMAZING! Our kids were so psyched to go after we completed a WebQuest yesterday in class so they could narrow down their free choice exploration time to the things they really wanted to do. We explored the many hands-on exhibits, had free time playing on the 4+ story climbing tower and were guided through the Native American exhibit. So cool!
Here we are all excited on the bus. "Are we almost there yet?"
Here we are at some of the hands-on exhibits.
The 4-story climbing tower with the zipline, slides, and climbing walls was the favorite of most students.
We learned about all three tribes that we have been studying at the American Indian Exhibit. First our class was split into three groups and assigned to explore and collect artifacts from a different tribe. The the students presented their findings to the rest of the class before all students explored all areas of this exhibit.
With it being such a beautiful day, we had lunch outside, and then back on the bus to head home.
