Never be with in doors when you can be with out!

Today we spent the entire day at the Park. It was a perfect day for an outing. Because the air was cool and crisp this morning, we had to dig out our jackets and sweaters for the first time of the season.

This was our first field trip of the year. For many of the sutdents and parents, it was their first nature walk aside from the ones we do around the school.

Everyone paired up with a buddy to hold hands with...

We viewed the lake first...

We found several leaves that had changed color and fallen already.There were many red and yellow silver maples, yellow elms, brown oaks (probably left over from last year). We compared the leaves we found to our nature book to learn the names!

Next, we spied a school of fish swimming back and forth along the shore.

We rubbed the bark of a pine tree which stretched way up high and touched the sky. We listened to the leaves clap their hands as the northerly wind blew through them.

Did we locate Peter Rabbit's hole?, or at least one of his relations.

We finished up the day with a picnic.....

and playing on the playground.

A good time was had by all. The children, parents and teachers enjoyed the sights and sounds of their first Nature Walk together.
