It has become a tradition at my school that every year, around this time, I host a camping day for the first graders. It is something that the students look forward to and a day full of fun outside. This year was no exception. The students had a blast!
To have a successful camping day, I enlist the help of my parents. They provide us with the food, and tents and help me set it all up and tear it all down. Around 7:15am, we started setting up our campsite. This year we had 7 tents! By 7:55 the campsite was ready for the kids to enter it!
Our camping day consists of many fun activities. The kids get to read to buddies inside the tents, go on a bug hunt, go on a scavenger hunt, make ants on a log (for their morning snack), and make ice cold, homemade lemonade. Our last few units of study have been plants and insects and this day really helps culminate those two units!
