Class Highlight: Kindergarten & 1st Grade Field Trip

This week Ms. Swarner's K/1st grade class and Mrs. Neely's 1st grade class took a field trip to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon.

The students were thrilled to see so many different planes and they're still talking about the enormous Spruce Goose!!!  Everything at the museum is flight themed (of course!), even the playground. Learning and exploration went hand in hand with tours and a variety of group activities throughout the day. One favorite part of the day was when students participated in a hands-on paper airplane workshop where they made their own planes and got to "test fly" them to see which plane would fly the farthest. 

Here are a few photos from their flight-filled day:
