Hi guys today I’ll be talking all about the 5th grade field trip! So 5th grade has recently went on a field trip to Cat tien for a new unit called, the GREEN DRAGONS! It was time to get going to Cat tien so we get on the bus! Right now we’re getting split into 2 groups (I was in group 1)
4 HOURS LATER
We’re here, I could already smell and feel all fresh air that was around. We all had to cross a river so we went on a fairy to get there. Since there were 59 students in 5th grade we had to go 2 times to get to the other side of the river. After all the transitions we had our lunch at the Yellow bamboo restaurant. Next part was the best we got to finally know our roommates, I was with KARIS. Which was fine but all the girls from group 1 got the oldest cabins! I was one of them, I was pretty disappointed guess I’m just gonna live with it. After putting all of our suitcases and stuff into our cabins we settled into the fairy again to get to Dao Tien. We get to Dao Tien and I find out that it’s actually called a Primate center. I was so happy because in that center therefore was my 3rd favorite animal. It was the one and only GIBBONS. After about 3 hours at the Primate center we head back to the fairy once again to the other side. When we got back I was so tired luckily we got to go back to our cabins to do some journalling for about 30 minutes. Then after all that jotting we got to have some free time for 30 minutes. Me and Karis went to other peoples cabins to hangout, we finally went to Yoon hae and Kimberly’s cabin to play some card games.
30 MINUTES LATER
We started meeting at the Yellow bamboo restaurant for dinner for about an hour. At that time all the people at my table were so tired so all of us ate a lot! We once again got back to our cabins for some rest or quiet reading time for 30 minutes. Group 1 and 2 started heading outside for the next night activities. Group 1 had Night Safari which is where you sit on a big truck and go inside the forest. Then group 2 had their Night sensory hike which is where you go into the forest without flashlights (the forest was pitch black) for an hour or so.
1 HOUR LATER
We get back and now it was time for the BONFIRE, but teacher led. It was so much fun, teachers had students do some activities. Then at the end we started roasting MARSHMALLOWS! Ms.Fox said we said turn them around above the fire atleast 30 seconds, I was picky about the marshmallow so I did it for 1 minute.
1 HOUR LATER
We head back and there it was time to sleep.
Day 2 was pretty much the same as day 1 but we got to go to the Moon bear center, Micro ecosystems,Night sensory hike and the Bonfire (Student Edition). At the Moon bear center we got to make food for the bears then hide them. We would now let them find it. At the Micro ecosystems we had a rope and we had to place it in a random place. Then find things inside that area and put cards on them. Now the Night sensory hike I was so scared but I held Catherine’s hand so that made me feel better. Later on we had to stop and lay on the road to look at the stars.
1 HOUR LATER
It was time to do the Bonfire student edition, I didn’t do anything so just sat there and watched. Everybody did a really good job on planning the activities. After that LIGHTS OUT
We woke up and had breakfast then went hiked for 2 hours. We went back and make banh mi then started heading to the fairy and we get to the bus and headed back to SSIS.
