On Monday, which was October 10th, our class and other two classes of 3rd grade went to field trip. Hurray!!! It’s good to see the difference between American-style’s field trip and Chinese-style’s Autumn trip.
We went to Saint John’s Outdoor University. Kids told me that they’ve been there for several times before we arrived here, but I thought both of us would have a brand new experience.

Compared to our Autumn trip in my childhood, this one is much more meaningful. My elder cousins told me that when they were children, their Spring trips and Autumn trips are more interesting than mine. Their schools organized trips to visit other cities, climb mountains, visit zoos. A few years later, for safety, schools canceled such wonderful trips. So go back to my years, we went to public park and had picnic again and again.
Nurses of Madison gave teachers first-aid kits. Then the school bus took us to Saint John’s Outdoor University. The scenery of the university was quite beautiful.This field trip was much more like hiking. We had several stops, played games, not only the kids but also I learned new things about the plants, seeds, squirrel and Blue jay. I never thought that school field trip would be so educational.
A simple and inimate communication with Nature.
Things are getting better and better, children started to accept me. I felt that connection between us. They would listen to me, and some kids would give me hugs when they leave. Keep up.
