HCES Second Graders Earthscope Hiking Field Trip
Our second graders went on an exciting field trip in mid-October. They learned all about animal groups and characteristics at the Earthscope learning Center on Monte Sano Mountain. They learned about sharing the Earth with animals and others. They participated in exciting learning centers and even got to identify over 20 different animal pelts that are local to north Alabama.
The children, teachers and chaperones had a wonderful picnic lunch also. After a fun day of hiking, several children fell asleep on the bus on the way back to school! The Earthscope hike leaders often say that our school has the most parent chaperones in the whole city! We appreciate our involved parents! We are looking forward to our next field trip in February to see "Mary Poppins" the musical at Huntsville High School!
