Springfield Museums Field Trip
We will meet at the museums (21 Edwards Street Springfield, MA 01103) at 9:45am
Students will participate in two one-hour programs:
10-11am: Scutes & Scales Explore the fascinating lives of some of the most loved, feared and misunderstood animals on Earth— reptiles. Learn about their unique senses, physical features and behaviors, as well as their life cycles and habitats through engaging hands-on activities and a visit with our live reptiles!
11am-12pm: Just Survive! Students experience the challenges of daily survival as they assume the identities of different animals with different adaptations. The object is to acquire adequate food, water, and shelter within their habitat, while keeping out of the clutches of the dreaded predator. This program can be taught outdoors during warmer months.
12-12:30pm: I have reserved a place for us to eat lunch. Either bring your own or purchase something at the cafe.
12:30-3:30 (or whenever you want to leave): Self-exploration of museum buildings.
Located in the heart of downtown Springfield, Massachusetts, the Springfield Museums offer access to five world-class museums, including the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden, all under a single admission. There is the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, the Springfield Science Museum, the Michele and Donald D’Amour Museum ofFine Arts, the Lyman and Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History, and the Amazing World of Dr. Suess Museum.
Cost: $9/student Children under 4 and not participating in the programs are free
Also, since we are doing a school field trip they have given us a special deal and one adult from each family is free. Additional adults pay $9.
They have a minimum number of students needed to run their programs, so please mark it on your calendar and plan to attend if you sign up.
I will collect the money at TALC the two weeks prior, so we can pay as a group.
