Second at the Shedd

Forest Park School District 91

On Thursday, March 16, our Betsy 2nd graders spent almost the entire school day at the Shedd Aquarium. They are feeling very lucky to have such an incredible experience within driving distance! The second graders enjoyed the dolphin show and exploring all of the exhibits. They were especially excited to touch starfish and catfish! The children were excited to share their experiences with other staff members, and we're sure they'll be writing plenty about them in their March writing journals.
