Experiential learning is an important part of a Fieldstone education, as next week’s blog post will profile. Even our youngest students get to experience meaningful learning outside the classroom, helping us to offer them a unique and enriching private school kindergarten experience.
This week, we are pleased to report that the Kindergarten and Grade One Class participated in a very successful fieldtrip to Ripley’s Aquarium last Tuesday, in which they not only experienced the spectacular permanent exhibits, but also got to participate in a workshop on marine habitats. The students learned that sea creatures need shelter, food, water, and air to survive (as do humans), and they made their very own dry aquariums to take home! Highlights of the trip involved touching the horseshoe crabs, white-spotted bamboo sharks, prawns, and stingrays.
Upcoming FDS fieldtrips include excursions to the Toronto Zoo, Black Creek Pioneer Village, and the Hamilton Warplane Museum.
