Poondi field trip

For the month of October, the grades 3-4 learned all about the classification of animals, plants, recycling, pollution and outdoor survival for our field trip to Camp Poondi. We created a large diorama of Camp Poondi with trees, mountains, the lake, animals, tents and US! Unfortunately the trip to Poondi was rained out but we didn’t let that stop our fun and learning. We ended up camping out on Ganga campus, putting up tents, exploring our environment to find lots of bugs, and according to the students and their wonderful imaginations we saw bison, a fox and even a baby grizzly bear!! It doesn’t take much to get their imaginations going!! We had a blast!
