Midcoast Fall Field Trip - Day #1

November marked our FIFTH ANNUAL TLC Fall Field Trip! This year we are studying island ecology and marine biology so we figured it made sense to stick close to the coast for our work together! Our island students, teachers, and parents traveled down, up, and across to all meet in Rockland, Maine for a 36 hour TLC mid-coast adventure!

 

Our students arrived on a foggy November afternoon at a local church that we used as a home-base for much of our programming during our trip! We began with some interactive games to break-the-TLC-ice!

Then it was time for each of the island schools to break out their "island-social-studies" board games.  

Each school created one or more board game to teach the rest of the TLC about their island's history, both past and present. Schools were able to make their games as simple or complex as they saw fit!

We broke up our students into mixed-age and island school groups and sent them off with the games. Our TLC teachers led the groups and I got to watch in amazement as they all played and learned together.

Some of the games had maps focusing on island geography and ecology.

Other games taught about island jobs and economy. The students were empowered to teach others about their own islands and also engaged in learning about the other outer islands histories!

Once all the games had been played it was dinner time! We had a festive meal at Blue Sky Cantina in Rockport, Maine.

Good food and good company, what our TLC field trips are known for!

And the other thing that TLC field trips are known for? POOL TIME!

It is true that all of these kids live on islands that are surrounded by water but they don't get a chance to swim very often!  

We always try and stay somewhere that has a pool so that not only do they get a chance to be the little fishes they all love to  be, but they get to do it as a group (which makes it WAY more fun!)

And this pool was even cooler because it had a shower...

AND HOT TUB! 

We were living the high life during day one of our field trip!
