Canton ventured out on his first field trip today to the EMU Science Lab, with special guest, DAD! The day started off meeting the group in the lobby to put together some different patterns of colored buttons on a board. Once everyone arrived, the entire class walked over to EMU’s campus and went into one of their science buildings.
Our first stop was some small aquariums where we got to see a Nemo fish and a turtle. From there we went into the anatomy lab and got to hold actual human bones! Canton held a femur, scapula, and ulna! Not everyone can say they’ve done that. There were also lots of models including the human body, a heart, an eye, and an actual human brain! When in the anatomy lab, Canton told everyone what the heart did and even found a part of the brain the instructor couldn’t identify!
From there we went over to the animal exhibits where we saw lots of eggs, animals, rocks, and a 20ft boa constrictor! After leaving the science lab, we went outside to the EMU garden, crossed a really cool bridge, and had snack outside. After snack, we went to the EMU library to see some art work and finally back to the commons building where we started. We all got to run a lap on the indoor track too!
It was a fun day had by all!
