Kaylyn's first 5th grade class field trip was to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. We thoroughly enjoyed this field trip. It was very educational and tied together some of the lessons they have learned in Science (i.e. ecosystems, environments, biomes, etc...). We actually got in the water to see what we could catch in the brackish water. The water was cold and there were a lot of mosquitoes that left big welts. The kids really enjoyed this and I did too! Kaylyn wore a hat and it cast a shadow on her face in most of the pictures, but she's still cute!
