Field Trip to Souris!

  What a fantastic day for a field trip!  This morning we loaded the bus driven by Mrs. Barb Elliott and headed to Souris.  Mrs. Gray came along to help Ms. Simms with supervising the 18 students.  We started the day with a trip over the swinging bridge where we saw a turtle sunning itself and some Canada geese and ducks.

Next we went to the Bird Sanctuary in Victoria Park and then headed to Subway to pick up our lunch.  We ate in Victoria Park and had time for a play at the neat playground there.

Then we went to the Rock Shop where we learned about the different types of rock that we might find.  Next stop was the rock pile outside of town where everyone filled their bags and identified agate, jasper, petrified wood and even some fossils.

We had just enough time for a treat before we took the bus back home to Reston.  We had such a fun day and we will never look at rocks the same way again!
