Last Thursday, Michael's 2nd grade class took a field trip to the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond.
Fun videos here
They just finished studying the life cycle of a butterfly, so they went to see the IMAX of Flight of the Butterflies. I was able to accompany the class as a chaperone.
Lots of hands-on activities
A reptile room, where the kids got to pet a snake. Ewww!
Conditioned like Pavlov's dog
Petting the rat. Ewwww.
The IMAX theater was very cool.
My group of 5 sat WAY up high, so we could get the best vantage point.
Simple machines- pulleys

We were supposed to be back at school by 2:30, but I-95 traffic prevented that from happening. I was a few minutes late to work, but it was worth it to accompany the class on this cool trip.
