Nothing beats taking a day completely off of work to head to Baltimore on an aquarium field trip! Better yet, doing that all on a Monday.
That’s exactly what I did yesterday.
I took the trip with the emotional support classroom in which I student taught/substitute taught throughout the past two school years. And we had a blast! I’ll be honest…I wasn’t entirely sure how a bunch of third to fifth grade students would do throughout an 11 hour day with over 4 hours on a bus, but all in all, it was a success!
Here are some of the friends we met:
Calypso, who still gets by even though she’s missing a fin!
Sharks and stingrays!
A sweet school of fishies
Blue poison dart frog
Dolphins doing some tricks
Really long jellies!
And here’s a random group shot. Everyone had homemade shirts with fish and sea creatures stamped and drawn on them. They even made me one
And since everyone was hungry and cranky on the way home (including adults!), we stopped at McDonald’s for some dinner. I can’t tell you the last time I was in the place! I got their southwest chicken salad with Italian dressing, and it wasn’t that bad. I liked the corn and black beans that were in it the best. Also, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I had a few handfuls of fries, too. Ehh, life moves on.
As a swimmer, I love fish and aquatics, and the aquarium was a fabulous place! I think I could spend days there!
What’s your favorite type of animals? Jungle, farm, ocean, etc…
