    Jayden's class took their field trip to Indian Springs Metropark during the day on May 14th, 2015. The kids were broken into groups, and Jay's group started out on a nature hike. We made it through several different environments, including prairies and wetlands. We got to see some wildlife, including geese, killdeer, turkey, and cranes. From there we went to do some "dipping" with nets in the lake. The kids really struggled to see anything worthwhile here, as the only thing Jay and her partner managed to scoop up was a snail. After that we headed inside to the classroom to learn about different animals and see some live animals. Once that was over, it was time to head home for the day. The kids all seemed to enjoy themselves while they also learning - all without even realizing it!
