First Grade Field Trip in Germany

Giddy first graders donned boots

and jackets to go outdoors after

the snowfall to discover and document

those footprints left behind by the

rabbits, squirrels, and deer. They

documented in carefully written

journals those wonderful discoveries.

Bright-eyed and happy in the tiny

German village where Oscar Mayer

was born. Their teacher led the

field trip through the snow and

explained where the creatures

lived in the cold winter months.

Red-cheeked and happy,

the first graders returned home

after school to tell their parents.

Seeing life in a simple manner

through the eyes of children is

a wonderful way to view life.

Wishing everyone peace.

    How lovely to have gone on a field trip in Germany and in the winter too. A field trip can be the highlight of your year at school…at least it was for me. So agree children see the world through simpler eyes and mindset – and with so much curiosity too. At that time of life nothing seems impossible.

    • Mabel, thank you for the lovely comment. Our son was in first grade in Kösingen, Germany and our daughter in Kindergarten at the time. Even as a Fulbright teacher, we went outside daily with our classes, rain or shine or snow. Enjoy the weekend. 🙂
