First Grade Field Trip to Museum and Cabelas

Megann McKendrick

The first grade recently went on a fieldtrip to the Museum of Natural Curiosity and then to Cabelas.  We loved learning about all types of animals around the world. We then tried out hunting and feeding fish at Cabelas. We let the scientist come out of us as we explored in the Museum of Natural Curiosity.
