Kissel Hill’s 2nd Grade Gretna Glen Trip

Yesterday, Kissel Hill’s 2nd grade classes (Engroff, Clausen, Smith, and Cascarino) and Mrs. Lewis’ Autistic Support class spent the day at Gretna Glen Camp and Retreat Center in Lebanon for a day of outdoor learning.

The 2nd graders have been working through their Living Things Unit in both their reading and science classes, so this was the perfect field trip to tie up the end of the unit.

During the field trip, students were able to visit the pond on site to hunt for aquatic critters. They were also able to take a nature walk and visit the teacher-lead mini museum on the property where they did a nature craft. In addition, the classes enjoyed a wonderful picnic lunch outside in the beautiful sunshine. During lunch, classmates had time to eat, chat, and play on the playground. Finally, students ended the day with games and a final nature wrap up.

“Students were full of excitement and enjoyed a fun-filled day outside in the sunshine,” said Yvonne Engroff, a 2nd grade teacher at Kissel Hill. It was especially nice to have the Autistic Support class join in on the fun, she added.
