2nd grade field trip!

On Wednesday I went with my 2nd graders to the Gwinnet County Environment and Heritage Center for a field trip!!

| Casual OOTD |
This was such a treat compaired to the clothes I normally have to wear when I'm at the Elementary school!! I felt weird even having jeans on in the school haha!

Here are a few pictures from our trip...
 The kids dipped feathers into oil to see what it feels like for the birds when people put oil in the water. Then they got to use soapy water to clean them off to see how the birds felt when they were all clean :) They loved this activity because they got to keep their's the little things!

Next, they learned about pH levels. I was SO impressed with them because this is not typical 2nd grade work, but they did great!

We got to go on a nature walk which was so much fun! A lot of my sweet babies had never even been in the woods before {most live in apartments in the city} so this was very cool for them :)

All in all it was a great day!! I am so sad that I only have 3 days left with these kids...definitely going to miss them--they have been an AWESOME class!!
