In the month of February 2010 two
Each day the students write their name on their ticket(s) and place it in their box. The teacher draws a name from the box every week to see who would receive the privilege of going on a fun "Saturday Field Trip". These field trips occur every two weeks with three fifth grader and three first grader students attending. The two teachers choose where they would go, and what they would do. A few of the trips so far have been The African-American Heritage Festival, hiking in the D.C. Arboretum, and many other wonderful things.
My classmates really seem to like these field trips but I have not been able to go yet. I look forward to my opportunity to go because each of the students I have spoken to said they have enjoyed it and would like to go again before the school year ends in June.
