Fossils trip, Grade 2.

On Saturday October 17th 2015, 63 students from grade 2 enjoyed a fabulous day in nature. The trip started off from Adma, continued along the sea coast, and ended up in the mountains of Haquel.  The beautiful scenery and the fresh air could not go by unnoticed. The first destination they reached was a very old school in the village of Haquel. Next to the school was an old church and one of the biggest oak trees ever seen. The students sat under the tree and ate their breakfast and sang nice songs. The next stop was the original fossil quarry deep in the mountains of Haquel. To reach the area, the students had to hike along an adventurous path to get to the heart of the mountain where some men were hard at work finding fossils that are millions and millions of years old. After the tiresome walk, the students found this journey worthwhile especially since they were able to bring home with them some of the fossils they were able to collect. The Fossils’ museum was another attraction that this village had. The students enjoyed touring the museum and buying souvenirs.  The last stop of the expedition was Lehfed country club. In the local restaurant, all of the students’ senses were awakened as they sat in the middle of nature to eat, play and create art work from natural elements. What made that trip more interesting was the fact that the study of fossils was one of the students’ science lessons this year, and they had the opportunity to see and discover what they had learned in their books.
