Today we “traveled” to Ohio for our virtual field trip. We participated in a program called, Living in a New Land. It was very informative and went right along with what we have been learning about in Social Studies. We learned a lot of the history, then we did a sorting activity, and ended with a Thanksgiving reader’s theater. Don’t forget to ask your child about this awesome experience. Here are a few statements that the students wrote down about how they felt about the field trip.
Haven said, “Wow, what a spectacular time we had when we were playing with the flashcards.”
Angelo said, “Wow, I had the best day today. We learned about pilgrims. I had fun with reading the book with that teacher on the screen.”
Kaylee said, “Wow, today I met someone who was in Ohio and she told us about the pilgrims and Indians.”
Tyler said, “I loved the readers theater, it was sweet!”
Jayme said, “Wow, I had a good time on that virtual field trip. I learned that the pilgrims could not communicate with the Indians.”
Nicholas said, “Wow, I loved learning about the pilgrims. I learned what they ate at the first Thanksgiving. I also learned that the king wanted them to do what he told them to do.”
Kaitlyn said, “Wow, the field trip was fantastic. I liked the part when we got to play the game. It was so awesome to see people in another state on the massive screen.”
