Mrs. Hatfield’s second graders took a field trip last week to the Oakland Mills Nature Center. The weather was beautiful. The students explored the Nature Center and searched for insects within the habitats. They answered questions about insects and used nets to catch insects in the prairie grass.
The students also learned about the season of autumn and the changing of the seasons. They played a squirrel game and learned how squirrels collect food for the winter, while trying to avoid their predators. The students also took a nature hike through the woods to observe the seasonal changes in the forest.
