Field Trip to the Tallahassee Museum

    Friday, April 23, 2010




    On Friday, April 23, 2010 (in honor of Earth Day), ESOL students 2--5th grade, Ms Murphy's 2nd grade class and Ms Kimel's 5th grade class went on a field trip to the Tallahassee Museum. This was our culminating activity of our year-long unit of study about Florida wildlife and landscape. Earlier in the semester, students had also learned about the Florida Highwaymen's work in art class. On this trip, students participated in a Zoo Tour and created drawings on location at the museum. Many thanks to Mr Gibby who led the Zoo Tour.  A big thank-you also goes out to university participant Nicholas Stenstrom, volunteer Mrs Rodriguez and our parents (of Yeraliel, Yamila, Kevin, Anylah, Jaila, Zackery, Yashaya and Anthony) for chaperoning and helping out with the trip. Finally, many thanks to Ms Yates, our art teacher, for doing this joint project with ESOL.

    Many thanks to Ms Beck for coming out to Pineview to talk to our ESOL students about FL wildlife. During the presentation, Ms Beck showed us live animals rescued at the Association: a great horned owl, red-tailed hawk, flying squirrel and gray rat snake.
