Reflection: Journaling Finding Erosion at Our School - Section 2: Engage!


Our little field trip turned out to be a great success.  The children were very engaged and excited to go around the school yard.  Who would have thought that they would be thrilled for this simple, transportation free event?  It really seemed to connect what we were learning in the classroom to what is really happening in the real world.  The kids loved looking around and being detectives.   I was pleasantly surprised that a few of the children told me places that the had noticed evidence of erosion when they were previously out at recess.  It shows that they have been thinking about erosion outside of our four walls on their own.
