For our first field trip, we walked to “Shorewood Park”, better known around these parts as “Path Park”.  The kids LOVE going there.  It is mostly a series of paths that wind around in the woods.  The paths double back and connect to each other.  This makes the kids feel like they are free in the woods or “lost”  if they are out of our sight for a second but there is no escaping us teacher’s since the paths always wind back around.  This park has many legends that this class has passed down from year to year.  Legends of coyotes and bears and monsters and creatures.  It feels a little spooky and it is so beautiful and such a relief to step into what feels like a large forest right in our back yard.

I love that the legends have continued this year as well:
