A field trip is one of the most memorable events of any school year! Antelope Island and our visit to Garr Ranch was RAD! We crossed over a land bridge over the mysteriously beautiful Great Salt Lake and reached Antelope Island. We saw antelope and bison roaming freely and pelicans soaring high over head. We reached the ranch and we spun wool, weaved a blanket, made bricks, built a wall with bricks, made a pioneer ring out of horse shoe nails, did a pioneer child's chore of picking up sticks after a windstorm (because the saw broke and we couldn't do the wood cutting station) and raced each other in gunny sacks. We finished the day eating lunch in the grove of trees. The weather couldn't have been more perfect! Thank you to our amazing parent volunteers who worked hard to make the day a success!
Here is a LOT of photos and one hilarious video!
