3rd grade field trip to Shipley’s nature center

3rd Grade students had their field trip to Shipley’s Nature Center! This field trip was for their project about Native Americans. Shipley’s Nature Center is located in Huntington Beach, CA.  According to Shipley’s Nature Center’s website, they have eight different habitats within the 18 acres of land including Oak Woodland Habitat. There are tons of different animals such as coyotes, Opossums, Raccoons, and Skunks which you will not see during the day, and Ground Squirrels, Cottontail Rabbits, and Redtail Hawks. They have Amphibians, Mammals, Butterflies, Reptiles, and much more. I interviewed Dylan W. in Ms. Del Rosario’s 3rd Grade class. He said “ I loved the field trip, It was so much fun. We went into a key which is a Native American home and we got legends told to us.” “We also got to use a pump drill to use on and shell to make Native American money. We also played a game like a telephone.” “ And someone got to use a duck net.” “ I was really fun”  We kinda did stuff that the Native Americans did but in a safer way.  It sounds like the 3rd graders had a great time at Shipley’s Nature Center!
