Fall Field Trip Day #1

Well, it's been two weeks so I can safely say everyone is fully recovered from our FOURTH ANNUAL TLC Fall Field Trip! It was another one for the books. We only had two days and two nights together but we made the BEST of it and jammed as much fun, learning, and collaboration in as possible!


 Each of our SIX island schools met at the Maine State Museum on day one! It is always a big, beautiful mess of island children running, hugging, and giggling when we all meet up! The kids immediately began playing some games on the museum lawn as we waited for everyone to arrive (games are SO much better with MORE kids!)

 Once everyone gathered we all headed into the Museum for Maine Earth Science Day, which was an one day educational fair, full of displays and interactive demonstrations focusing on Maine’s geology, energy education, hydrology, archaeology, and mega-mammals from the Ice Age! It was a great match for our Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils unit we have been focusing on this FALL!

 

 All of the TLC students were broken up into groups depending on their grade-level so they got to explore the different exhibits and workshops with their inter-island friends. There were over one-thousand students from the state at the museum that day so it was not only a lesson for our kids in earth science, but it was also great exposure to how best behave in a large group setting! I may be biased, but I think our TLC kids were some of the most patient, kind, and engaged students there!

 

 The exhibits were extremely hands on and informative. It cracked me up that all the island kids were drawn to the touch-tank filled with crabs, periwinkles, and starfish! I guess once an island kid, always an island kid. The best part was that they were teaching the other students visiting the exhibit about all the specimens in the tank!

 

 After a full day at the museum, everyone piled into their cars and drove to the Mollyocket Motel in Woodstock where we were staying for the next two nights. We all got settled in and met in the conference room for some ice-breakers and name-games! (With all the new members of the TLC this year it was important to make sure we all know who each other are!) You would be amazed by how many students were able to name everyone in our group!

 

 Next on the agenda was a little quiet time of drawing for an awesome TLC fundraiser we are trying to get organized (think inter-island greeting cards!) Stay-tuned for more information on that SOON!

 

All that coloring made everyone work up an appetite! Good thing we had LOTS of salad, spaghetti, and garlic bread to go around! Here are some of the olders chowing-down! These four kids are from FOUR different island schools, but you would NEVER know it!

 

And of course the best part of the day according to the students? Pool time!

 


Most of the kids and adults enjoyed the OLYMIC sized swimming pool that was at the motel! It was amazing.

 

What was my favorite part of the day, you ask? Watching new TLC friendships form... like these two little cuties from two different islands who realized they have the same color hair and eyes... AND that they were missing the same two front teeth! 

 

And another new friendship! NINJA BUDDIES! These two spent the evening playing pranks on some of the middle schoolers who were "too cool" for the pool! But did I mention there was a basket ball hoop at the motel as well!? It was middle school heaven! 

Day one was a huge sucess... and made us all just THAT more excited for day two to start!
