A Field Trip and another Freebie!

So we went on our annual Roper Mountain Science Center field trip and it was so  much fun! We got to go to the South Carolina living history farm to see what life was like during the 1800's! We picked cotton, indigo, fed some chickens, and saw a pregnant cow pooping! It was quite the event! We also got to go to the Marine Lab and pet some sting rays and horshoe crabs, hold sea urchins and hermit crabs, all while learning about marine animal adaptations! Here are some pictures! 

Holding a sea urchin!

 Can we just count how many of my students are actually paying attention to the teacher? I swear this picture just captures my class perfectly. This is like my daily struggle! They're all in like a million different directions and the sweet girl in pink with her head in her hands got sent to school that morning with a fever! She said, "It's okay, my daddy gave me some medicine so I could still go!" WHAT!? Nobody wants to catch your sickness!! 

Whoever guesses how many students are paying attention correctly can pick one item from my shop! HAHA

 Tilling the soil!

I just love this picture of her picking cotton!

 I know you wanted to see the cow pooping. lol All of the students, INCLUDING me, were laughing and the instructor was like, "SHHHH!" I mean really!? I was thinking, that cow just took a crap and it's funny!! They're kids and they just think poop is hilarious! Get over it!

More cotton picking! 

And I know many of you loved the trading card idea but don't teach explorers. I made another template that you can edit for any famous person you wish to do! Just click the picture below to download!

I will be back with more stuff later! I'm still working on my Math Early finisher unit and I am going to make some Multiplication Posters to post also! Happy Saturday!


  1. From the picture I am going to go with 2 students who were actually paying attention!


  2. Hugs! We all end up with a class like that every so often. It did look like a fun field trip! If I were to guess, the little girl closest to the camera with her back turned seems to be the only one even looking at the speaker.

    Hopefully your next trip goes better!


  3. What a cool field trip for SC history, wow!! I love the freebie, thanks friend!

  4. That looks like a great real life learning experience. The cow pic was funny. ;)

  6. I am pretty sure I have your class's twin siblings! Wonder if I can secretly snap their photo and count who is actually attending to what is being said? Thanks for the idea...

  7. Thanks for sharing the template! I think it is safe to say we've all been in that who in the picture is paying attention...plus the cow? Priceless!
    Happy holidays to all!

  8. Is the template still available? I would love to be able to use it with my class. Thanks!
