Our trip last week to The American Museum of Natural History was a success! The children were delighted to see South African animals that we’ve been studying.
Riding the bus and the subway were some of the most exciting parts of the trip for children!
Once we arrived, we found a nice spot to sit outside of the museum to have snack (after thoroughly disinfecting hands!).
Then we headed inside to begin our exploring! With their small groups, children visited the Hall of African Mammals and the Hall of African People. Some children stopped to draw what they saw. Everyone was excited when they spotted the animal they have been studying.
After touring the museum, we walked to Diana Ross Playground in Central Park and ate our lunches on the benches.
The children were very eager to finish their lunches and play in an unfamiliar playground full of sand!
Then it was time to head home! The subway and bus were just as exciting on the way home. We were happy for some rest!
After we arrived back to school, we took some time to rest and rehydrate then headed back out to the park to enjoy popsicles. It was a great day!
