I was very happy to be able to chaperone the first grade field trip to Pierce Beach this morning. The first graders went to Pierce Beach in the fall to collect data (water temperature, air temperature, living and nonliving items on the beach, etc.) and then returned today to collect the same data to compare to their fall visit.
It was a nice day to be there, a little windy, but still nice enough. The only problem was the warning sign regarding bacteria in the water. Gross. I had to scoop up a cup full of that water and measure the temperature!!!
After two hours of experiments and observations, we ate lunch and then the kids spent some time on the playground.
