Enrichment Experience


As part of your FIELD TRIP you can choose to include a 30 minute Educator-facilitated, standards-based, integrated arts activity.  You can choose one of the following:

Sense-ational Art
We will learn about our senses, what we use them for and how our sense of sight, smell, sound, taste and touch help us explore, understand, and describe the world around us. Using a variety of textured materials, students will create an original art piece. (Best for Pre-k and K grades)

These Are the Buildings in My Neighborhood
In this lesson students will explore the components of a community. They will discover what institutions, careers, and people make up a community and how communities work together. Students will then collaborate with each other to design and create their own community blueprints. (Best for Pre K to 1st grade)

What’s Your Power
Even at a young age, students have the power to make the world better. By comparing real life heroes to superheroes, students explore what powers they each have to make a positive impact on their families, their schools, their communities, and their planet. They will then create a version of their “superhero” selves or a real life “superhero” in their lives. (Best for K and 1st grades)

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We can ALL make a difference in the world, one plastic bottle at a time. Learn how the waste we produce affects the environment around us, and the beneficial impacts reducing, reusing and recycling our waste can have. Students will learn what can be recycled and create their own recycling sign to take home. (Best for K and 1st grades)
