2018-19 Field TripsTop of Page

3rd Grade Ecology Wallpaper icon

On our endless quest for knowledge, we must occasionally venture into the world beyond our classroom.  Visits we have planned to enhance our curriculum are:

Shoreway Environmental Center: What exactly happens to the refuse we create? As ambassadors of the environment, our young ecologists will learn where our recyclables are processed for a large portion of San Mateo County. The curriculum goal is to educate kids in resource conservation and 4R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot/Composting) behaviors so that they will be empowered to conserve resources in their lives and practice recycling at their schools and residences. 
  • Simkins: Tuesday, January 22, 2019
  • McLaughlin: Tuesday, January 29, 2019
  • Bertine: Tuesday, Feb 12, 2019
Marine Science Center:
  • March 5th — 9:30 - 12:30 (all three classes go together)

Folger Stables:  We will learn about local Woodside history and participate in some fun hands-on activities during our spring visit to Folger Stables. Each class will make this trip on a separate date and will need 6 or more parent chaperones. Dates will be determined later in the year as we typically make this trip in the spring.

  • Bertine: Wednesday, May 22, 2019
  • McLaughlin: Friday, May 24, 2019

Young Astronauts:  While we don’t actually go to outer space (yet), we have the next best thing.  Stanford graduate students visit us once a month to dazzle and amaze us with their knowledge of the solar system, rockets, the four forces of flight, states of matter, and more.  This dynamic program is a third grade treasure and incorporates the design process and principles!
