Natural History Museum DC Trip

We had such an amazing time on our field trip to Washington DC to the Natural History Museum this month. Thank you to all the parents who helped prepare and chaperone this trip- the 3rd grade team couldn’t have done it without your support! We learned about many animal adaptations, scientific discoveries and investigations. My favorite was the fossil lab in which you could watch real scientists analyze data and fossils. The kids’ favorite was all the gems and minerals!

Here are some of the pictures I was able to grab as I went around. Please send me anymore you have so I can share.
