On Monday morning the Prairie Green students put down their math homework and got on board the bus for the long anticipated ecology field trip. They grabbed their field notebooks, backpacks, and pencil cases, and waited for the bus to finish it's drive over the long gravel road. As soon as they got there, they ran down to what they call Pagoda Pond. Students stayed there and studied for a while, and when they finished, they rushed to Lower Pond 1 and 2 (also their names for them).
They collected plants and animals to sketch. They stayed outside the whole day observing life. At the end of the day they returned with pages of their notebooks filled with notes, vocabulary, and sketches of organisms.
