"Exceptional! Well-planned & high interest activities for the first graders. The instructors were very knowledgeable about the
content and very patient with our excited students! (I prefer this experience over Arlington Echo - pacing for activities
was just right for the little ones)." High Point Elementary Grade 1 (5/14/07)|
The instructors were great! My students were very fortunate to experience the butterfly activities at Carrie Weedon.
The hands-on work with the microscopes/specimens was beneficial because it brought to life our classroom instruction
about butterflies. We look forward to our trip to Carrie Weedon next school year. Thank-you!!
George Cromwell Elementary Grade 2 (5/23/06)
"We always need more time. My students love the live room, the taxidermy room , & all the exhibits in the hallway as well!
Learning about oysters & the animals in the oyster reef help children to understand the importance of oysters in the Chesapeake Bay.
Actually learning about the parts of an oyster & the function of each structure is very eye opening to our children.
They also loved the addition of the microscopes to look at organisms in the water."
West Annapolis Elementary Grade 3 (3/27/07)
"It was presented so well, organization, timing & presentations, that I cannot even imagine what they could improve on. The program was
very well prepared & the students gained much knowledge through active participation. The science teachers were outstanding. They
presented their science lessons in a very clear & direct way. The students were motivated & enjoyed their learning experience."
South Shore Elementary Grade 4 5/26/07
"After the trip, students were able to hold an informed conversation about characteristics of soil & water.
They made connections to other ideas that are related as well (fish tanks, pools gardens, etc.)."
