On a wonderful early November morning, our students along with teachers and staff were off to yet another trip as planned out for this school year.
This time our students went to the American Museum of Natural History in the Upper Westside.
During their visit, students were able to explore the natural world and the known universe, from the bottom of the ocean (Blue Whale Model Exhibit) to the vast endlessness of space (Worlds Beyond Earth - Space Show)
In the Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs, our students saw "the 4-foot-long jaw, the 6-inch-long teeth" yet "the tiny arms" of a Tyrannosaurus rex, one of the largest dinosaurs that ever existed.
After a great day at the museum, everyone headed back to school where students received some assignments prepared by subject teachers about their experience and observations at the museum.
Every trip has a purpose to it, and students will be assigned some graded or ungraded work relating to the trips planned throughout the year.
