Thank you to all the parents who were able to come with us to the Museum. I hope everyone had a great time. I know the kids did. When we got back to school, I had the kids show me one thing they learned at the Museum. They could sketch, write me a letter, or explain with just words. They could choose the way they wanted to show me their learning! The field trip was a huge success.

Our Adventures at the Boston Children's Museum
To go or not to go, that was the question. As of Wednesday, the meteorologist called for a snowy mix right during the morning commute. Of course, we planned our field trip for the one day of Winter, so far, where snow was expected. So a decision had to be made. To go or not to go... Well, as a team we decided that if there was any sort of delay, we would reschedule the trip. If there was no delay, we would venture to Boston no matter what. Rewind to this morning at 8:00. No delay! Yes snow! Driving to Shrewsbury from Westboro, it was evident the snow was way worse as we moved West. As I arrived at school, I knew it was going to be a hectic morning. After all was said and done, name tags were placed, groups were formed, and the bus was loaded, we were on our way. The worst part of the trip was getting to the Mass Pike. Once we hit that, we were in the clear. The snow turned to rain and we were right on time! The bus dropped us off and after a short walk in the rain to get there, we had arrived. FEW!!
After our workshop, the kids were aloud to spend about an hour and a half exploring the rest of the Museum. Some of the favorite exhibits were; The Japan House, The Jungle Gym, The Art Studio, and the Bubble Room. Over all, despite the rocky start with the weather, they had such a blast! Here are some more pics from their explorations around the museum.
