Today was really exciting. The whole 5th grade went on a field trip to Cooper Mountain Nature Park. We were divided into 6 groups. I was in Mrs. Sheffels' group. There were two different parts. The first group went on a hike to the woodlands and prairie. The other group was doing some activities. The activities were about the food chain, another on animal footprints, and the last one was looking at scat (or droppings) to determine what animal it was. Then we had lunch. Finally after lunch we switched activities. Because I did the hike last, it was raining. It made it really hard to write on our papers. But at the end I think everyone had fun. I know I did.
