Aquarium Field Trip

A few weeks ago I got to accompany Handley's class on a field trip to the Georgia Aquarium.  It was a beautiful day and as soon as we arrived we ate lunch outdoors!  

We've been there many times before, but on this visit we got a different point of view with a behind the scenes tour and lessons relating to what the kids were learning at school.  

First up though we got to tour around with the kids and see all of the exhibits.  It doesn't matter how many times you walk in to see this large tank, it takes your breath away.  It was so fun to see the kids that had never been to the aquarium before.  They were in absolute awe.

Then Handley spotted a sea turtle, her favorite animal, and was jumping up and down with excitement.

He wasn't slowing down, but she followed him down the entire tank so she could get a picture. 

After checking out all the exhibits it as our time to meet up with the tour guide that would be leading the educational part of the field trip.  We saw this cute guy on our way there though! 

The kids learned about feeding at the aquarium and food webs.  We got to see above the large tanks and it was neat to see that perspective because it looked totally different than what the public sees.

It was a really fantastic field trip and I was so happy to get to spend the day with Handley!
