Preschool Visits with Mobile Tide Pools

Highlights From This Week
North Tustin 3rd Grades Visit the Environmental Nature Center 

This Tuesday, North Tustin third graders embarked on a brand new field trip to ENC (Environmental Nature Center) in Newport Beach. When we arrived, we were welcomed by three naturalists and students were divided into three different fauna groups: Coyotes, Bobcats & Hawks. Students traveled to six different hands-on activities on the gorgeous ENC property, which spanned a couple of acres behind the facility. Although we were a little cold with the cloud coverage, being outdoors was a fresh change to their traditional classroom environment.  

All the interactive games/lessons the ENC prepared reinforced our Science curriculum perfectly. Students learned about adaptation for plants and animals, but especially about the local cougar that can be found in Southern California. Students also learned how humans have drastically changed the environment and how we can help protect and preserve the environment/animals around us. This was a field trip the students will never forget.
