Aquarium Field Trip

June 2, 2013 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

aq 1    Our Vancouver Aquarium Field Trip is part of our Science grade. Students will be assigned into small groups and they will have to find fish that fit different categories. They will have example pages to help them. Groups must work together to collect all of the answers. It is an excellent learning experience. Students need to arrive at school at 7:30. We will leave at 7:45 am. My suggestion is that students go immediately to the tropical fish section before the crowds make it hard to view the name plates of the fish. While Mrs. Couse’s class is there at the same time they are not doing the assignment we are. I will be observing the class to see that everyone is behaving correctly.
