To complete a unit of study on the properties of rocks and minerals, first graders traveled to South Mountains State Park in Connelly Springs, NC on May 1st.

For the morning, they participated in three learning stations. In one station they learned about rocks and the rock cycle, in another they learned about prey and predators. They also participated in a relay demonstrating a predator hunting for prey. Last, they listened to a ranger talk about the animals that live in the park and the ranger also showed them skins and skulls of some of those animals.

After a picnic lunch, students and chaperones hiked along the Jacob Fork River to the base of High Shoals Falls and along the Hemlock Nature Trail where eleven displays explain the area's plants and animals.

    

 

On Monday, April 28, the Second Grade classes went to the Lazy 5 Ranch in Mooresville, NC. We took a wagon ride where students were able to feed and view a variety of animals from all over the world such as the Zebra, Giraffe, Bison, Texas Longhorn Cattle, Watusi Cattle, Emus, Llamas, Scotch Highland Cattle, Brahma, African Pygmy Goat, and tons of others, as well as learn about these animals from our experienced tour guides. After the wagon ride, students were able to tour the grounds of Lazy 5 where they saw more animals such as porcupines, camels, kangaroos, lemurs, peacocks and other exotic birds, tortoises, goats, sheep, donkeys. We had a fantastic trip and enjoyed getting up close and personal to the animals we have been learning about in our animal groups and life cycles unit.
