The 3rd grade headed west for a great field trip about the Tillamook forest. We really like the Forest Center, but the kiddos didn't have time to explore that. Instead, they had a wonderfully interactive lesson in the classroom where they got to act out 200+ years of Tillamook foreat history, and then take a short hike.
They are such a creative bunch of kiddos, they put humor in every skit. Even with the weather fading into drizzle, they were excited to go outside and explore.
The highlight of the hike was seeing a dead salmon in the river, though I was more interested in all the different kinds of mushrooms. Weird!
